life begins again by mirror-rim
life begins again by mirror-rim

Solitary Reflection

To be alone
for just awhile
let the dust settle
and try to smile
is nothing out
of ordinary
Sometimes it’s
just necessary
a little peace
and quiet time
reflecting on
the rhythm and rhyme
the words
the heartbeat
the sounds
replete
Lost in
happiness
or life in
sadness
Just hours
and days
passing on
by the ways
We live and love
dance and cry
holding on
and wonder why
it all is…
