Mirror Prayer

May the mirror I face
on the day of my death
reflect the essence
with which I was born.

  7. A beautiful prayer and poem Victoria! I like the idea that in the end it will matter that we have led the lives we were supposed to lead.

  8. Thank you all for the kind comments. This was one of those poems that just happened - rare for me, a muse poem. Usually my work is more the result of what my beloved friend Diane used to call "bum glue."
