Visions in the Mirror

Visions in the Mirror

 

Morning comes, so up I get,

and rush to look in the mirror.

Remembering your tender grip,

as your arms gently hug me.

I hold my breath anticipating,

that you will be in the picture.

All I see is another fading vision,

us together like we used to be.

We are in the park on a sunny day,

laughter and smiles in abundance.

Time just melts, when we’re together;

as love plays out to its own melody.

Neither of us want to ever leave,

with sunshine on our romantic moment.

I glimpse again, now we are at dinner,

playing games, as we look, at each other.

More memories come, as I close my eyes,

of you holding me tightly in your arms,

again safely you watch over.

I want to say those magic words ‘I love you’,

but I’m afraid you won’t say it back,

so again I freeze in my mirror,

I reflect but it won’t give you back,

into that bed disappointed I return.

My duvet seems an empty place,

until I realize you were there all alone.
