Mirror


I've seen

Tender affections sweet as perfume;

Belated beauty in full-blossomed bloom;

Fresh, new love without ripple or seam,

Burning and brilliant as a hot laser beam.


I've seen

Cold silence when the love has died;

Beauty replaced by scorn and pride;

Broken promises and gnawing despair;

Shattered dreams beyond repair.
