Looking Back
Author: Velma Brown


Mirror of life, reflecting a backward look-
i see myself
tiptoeing through yesterday's tulips.
There are no curled corners,
no torn pages there,
only you...with your golden eyes
sparking mockeries;
yet i recall how you made me laugh
when future tears were not yet conceived.
Even now, on looking back,
i see only what love wants me to see;
so i lift tomorrow's mirror...
...and look ahead.
