She Is

She Is

A Poem by Traci

She is my mirror. 
I stand in front of her unguarded, 

safe in the knowledge 

that her love is unwavering and always honest. 
She is my mirror. 
I stand in front of her and see myself 

as a baby, a teenager, a young adult, 

a new bride and a mom. 
She is my mirror, 
I see the best of who I am and the worst.
She is my mirror, 
 I see who I've become and who I was.
She is my mirror,
I see the hands of time in my face 

and the years in her eyes. 
She is my mirror,
When I look deep, I see the circle of life. 

I see a love 

that only a mother and daughter. can see. 
She is my mirror, 

through her cloudy eyes, I see love, I see me.

Such a thoughtful inspection of self and how you see what's there . Whatever's said about someone, only that person knows the truth and nothing but...

.. seems you feel that the WHO you see in that mirror is what you are.. and that's what matters.

A fine set of words, Traci and gently emotional, makes a friend think... for sure.

This is really sweet... I could see this in to perspectives... the first being a woman embracing all she is and proud of all she was... I can also see a woman admiring her mom and going she is all that her mom is.
