By The Mirror (poem)

Updated on December 6, 2013

Find me by the mirror waiting

One more dance

One more chance


One more moment recreating


Went their ways


Still I’m hoping she will find me

Silent now and lost completely

Ever dreaming I’ll be set free

One more dance perhaps then maybe


In the mirror now I’m searching

How could he

Let her flee


Imagination started working

Shadows fall

After all


Still reflecting tears I let by

Questions were asked I would deny

Now I’m alone wondering why

One more chance please life let me try


By the mirror mind debating

Feeling low

Should I go


Was it just my heart creating

dawning blur

Was it her

      Very well said, Martin. You capture the essence of the past, and what could have been done in another way.

      A very deep thought but it does speak of a love that burns in memory.

      Sad, but beautiful. You let emotions rise to the top and linger with a touch of imagination and the taste of salty tears.

      Oh, I think I totally misread this - I thought it was a poem about dying. Sorry. It's really very deeply romantic, hope he finds her.

      It's so sad when we let love slip though our fingers. Beautiful song choice, Martin.

      Really quite thought provoking and poignant. Deep and well written.

      If the protagonist in the verse is waiting for the woman to make up her mind, he could be in for a pretty long wait.

      Sad, honest and reflective. Thank you.

      All the Best,
