Descent

Sometimes I see you,

Share something of you

When I look at my reflection.

 

In my eyes

I sometimes find

An image of your face.

And I remember the love in your smile,

Warm breath on my skin,

Gentle hands on my hair.

 

One day

I will hold one as innocent,

Care for one as tiny,

As beautiful.

I will look down and smile

 

As you did.

 

And

When her beauty grows

And I can no longer hold her.

When she’s stopped crying for me

And loves another –

She too will gaze at her reflection

Looking for a glimpse of the past.

 

She too will stare

And when she finds a ghost in her eyes.

She will remember –

 

As you did.
