The Mirror

She looked at the mirror,

And froze at her place

Someone stared back at her,

A familiar face

With eyes full of questions,

Painted with mystery

Waiting to know about the future,

Asking her to let go of what was history

With a faint glow,

Giving her endless hope

Decorated with a smile,

Asking her not to give to give up

She turned away,

And wished that it wouldn’t stare

But when she looked back again,

The face was still there
Asking her to be strong,

To keep standing at her place

To embrace the person who looked back at her,

The one with the familiar face…

Angels on Earth

As she heard the first heartbeat,

A tear rolled down her eye

She looked at the angel

that she had just been blessed by

Her smile was radiant

Her skin as white as snow

Her face reminded her of the stars

it had that special glow

She embraced her tightly

and said – I love you

And the little angel held her finger

to show her that she knew

My strength, my hope, my pride

that’s what you will grow up to be

thought the woman

and smiled silently

Daughters are a blessing. A reason to go on. A beautiful gift from above. Treasure them all.
