Your Reflection

I feel a deep and lasting sorrow
rising now inside
for all the dreams left dying
for all the love we might have shared

and I wonder how it is you dare
to say you love, to say you care
when all you give to me is pain
Is it worth your moment's comfort gained?

Now you say this anger that you feel
can't possibly be real
unless it's mine
a pattern of sickness repeating in time

seems all that's left
while the child inside, bereft
fades out of view
for you refuse to face what's new

and might just prove to be
the opening to eternity
you claim to seek

Why are you so afraid of me
when all you really seem to see
is your reflection.?
