The End

Beautiful

You said

You’d never leave

Stay with me

For

Ever

Promised

Faithfully

 

Though I’m still here

I can feel me leaving

That woman in the mirror

She beckons from farther shores

Sadness reflected in her eyes

Etched deep in her wrinkles

 

In that mirror

You disappear

With one glance

Over my shoulder

You’ll be there

As you’ve been

For

Ever

I can feel you

Staring into a Looking Glass Land

Of time wound backwards

 

Eternally yours

Was never to be

I wanted it all

From beginning to end

So I’m the one leaving

Can feel myself fading

Just one more glance

Backwards in time

Always yours in memory
