Lucky Mirror

Lucky Mirror

By C. Derick Miller


Why can’t I be the mirror

Always knowing where you are

A reflection of your beauty

Somewhat present, never far

To enhance your every sparkle

Warming sunlight on your face

And the echo of your laughter

Which no distance can erase

Absent now, I miss your essence

Distant thunder, silent cry

It will never know the sorrow

Of a doorknob’s harsh goodbye

Constant presence in your pocket

Always privy to your scent

It can hold your gaze forever

Never wondering where you went

On wind, your silence whispers

Returned joy to set me free

Please take care, oh lucky mirror

Till she’s home again with me

Did you dig it? See more here!
