The poem is below.



O mirror of time
I can see you at all times
you are apart of my mind 
holding the pains of yesterdays 
I can see the eyes of me
looking back deep within my soul
to everything I know of long ago
When I walk over to the mirror 
that stands so tall in my darken room
I see the lies of he that was once with me
o how that made my heart bleed
like the rushing red sea 
I find myself going over and over
each lying words that he would tell me
My tears would roll down from my eyes
down on my face of yesterdays
I keep on looking in the mirror of time
just to see he eyes looking deep within mine
I hold in my heart and mind 
so much regrets ;
I don't have the words I truly want to say
I feel as if time had stopped and left me marked
deep down in my heart ,
I could see his eyes looking over me 
while he laugh as I cry 
while he cycles pains in my mind
I could still feel his ever touch 
o how I hate that so much ,
I go down on my knees
while my heart bleeds
while my own eyes look back at me 
in the mirror of time 
battling away on my faith 
like I have been locked away in a cage
like a bird hoping to be free 
into the mirror I did see 
Angel of love locking back at me 
the light that shines so bright
gave me hope for better days .
