You looked through me with eyes of steel
You spoke AT me with words that killed
The life you’ve led…You’ve made your bed
What more is there to say?
No, I’m not perfect
There’s no such thing
I do have faults
I’ll shoulder some blame
You got your way…You had your day
How happy you must be
To know that you, a big shot
Can squash a bug like me
To know that others see your mask
That hide your face no more
Must be a thought…a scary thought
For the one I once adored
Who do you recognize when you look in the mirror?
Is it someone you’re thrilled to see?
Or do you look at the one in the mirror with regret
For the one you used to be?
I hope one day our paths will cross
And we’ll meet again someday
On neutral ground and talk like friends
Before we went astray.
The way it was meant to be.
Today I am thankful for possibilities.
