A Poem by Elizabeth Brooks: "Your Reflection"

February 23, 2018

 

 

 

 

 

Your Reflection

 

 

You love to talk to me

in the mirror

when I'm putting on my make-up

a brilliant piece

would come to me

a thought or phrase

and I would smile

and catch a glimpse of You.

Your Presence captured

in the reflection of

my eyes

and a broad smile

You appear in

an instant

a joyous twinkle

a brief subtle

but momentous

reflection that I

wish to recreate.

But I have to

wait and

until someday in the mirror

we will meet again

so personal and

sweet. It validates who I am

deeply fulfilled and complete.
