mirror on the wall

oh wise mirror on the wall please do tell me where did i fall did i love too much did i love too little did i dottle did i diddle i look at me and say in awe how the heck did you get this far there are no regrets well maybe one or two but none to set my brain askew i have lived an exciting life i give all the credit to my wife in all honesty i will have to say what i see reflected is what i am today there is nothing two-faced about me i say it honestly to both friend and foe to me a handshake seals a bond i am serious about this with words i do not fool around i look in the mirror and see an honest fellow the mirror looks back and does not bellow

Happy valentines, Jancarl stopping by enjoying this mirror, hope it does not respond. I like the honest man you see. I now wonder what the man in the mirror sees when looking at you on the outside... xox~ Linda
