Take A Look In The Mirror

Take a look in the mirror
Into your memories, Into your thoughts
Into your present, Into your past
Somehow I am there awake
Forgotten-But you know him well
As moon knows to gloom
As spring knows to bloom

Take a look in the mirror
For your beauty to make
Eyes and brows and arrows
And smile-would had took him long
I know not-All that I know her voice
As smiling water falling down
As crystal stream wearing crown

Take a look in the mirror
Your past is but a silver coating
Painted to the same mirror
Reflecting me in front of
Break it or lash it, pieces will reflect but me
As desolation of rainbow
As sunrays behind the shadow

Take a look in the mirror
And feel the same last rainfall
Out me and you and you and me
Thunders and showers that our canopy
Whenever it is rainfall, your eyes, tears will fall
As clouds bring to fading flower
As last spoken words of forgotten lover

Take a look in the mirror
In cold shiver winter nights
Somehow I am there awake and alive and
Take a look into the mirror
In the summer colourful days-I am there
As warm days are long
As birds singing a lovesong

Into your memories, Into your thoughts Into your present, Into your past....... i am there awake....... a fine poem....... sweet memories....... enliven....human soul and the reflections........ thank u. tony
Congratulations.. Once again I am here to savour the exquitely crafted expressions. Thanks.
The subject of this poem is advising the object to consider his/her reflection, but there is obviously a connection here between the subject and the object of the poem, which creates a fascinating duality 'mirroring' the connection between the object and his/her reflection. We are left to contemplate and fill in the blanks between the stanzas regarding the relationship while contemplating the intriguing concept of the reflection of a human soul allegorized by the reflection of an image. Nicely done, good poet.
