The mirror within me !
I look at myself in the mirror,
wonder why I am growing old so fast!
All my hair has turned grey now,
For how long my life will last!
Where have those young days gone ?
They seem to have gone past so soon!
Oh can’t they come back again
and make me feel over the moon?
I would make wise use of them,
Every day wake up early from bed.
Have love and respect for each day,
Rectify the mistakes that I have made.
All my fondest dreams and aspirations
that have remained unfilled till today,
To make them all come true
I shall work hard , come what may!
I shall then have no regrets to get old
as that is inevitable I know,
But I would like to get my work done first,
Let movement of each day be very slow.
'There is so little time I have in hand
And so much work yet to do!
Oh my bygone days - please come back
Please try, my dear – Won’t you?’
I hear some one laugh and answer
‘We are far and far away from you !
Sorry ,in no way we can come back,
It’s not possible to make you feel new!
As I continue to stand near the mirror,
My eyes get wet, my image looks hazy,
But soon I come back to my senses
And realize I was being too crazy.
I wipe my tears, say to myself
I won’t ever brood over the past,
This little effort makes me feel good,
drives away my sadness at last.
I sit on the couch, close my eyes,
see myself in the mirror within me.
That mirror reflects my true image
which apart from me none can see!

The poem is written to arouse some laughter - Nothing else! I shall be glad if you find it funny.
I fondly remember my childhood days , the kind of love , care and attention received from my parents and sister. As I close my eyes those beautiful days come clear to me.
