The Magick of Mirrors

by J. Sandy

Age Group: Adult

The Magick of Mirrors

I looked into the mirror
As though, perhaps, to see–
Some fleeting hidden secret
Which you had seen in me.

You’d told me I was special,
You asked me to believe–
You shared with me a vision
Which I could not conceive.

In every single kindness
Revealed in every deed–
You spoke to me in silence,
You understood my need.

You looked into my being
And found the love within–
While looking past the present
Accepted where I’d been.

You found the time to tell me,
Though words would often fail–
Where flowers, hugs and kisses
Uniquely breathe their tale.

Your smiling eyes engulfed me;
Your presence made me weak–
With looks and touch caressing
The blush upon my cheek.

How did you ever do it?
You found what I had lost–
You found what I had hidden
At such a fearful cost!

And still I kept resisting:
“It’s you, not me. You see?”--
“You merely saw reflections
Of things that couldn’t be!”

The light of day is blinding.
The dust of life will stain–
The awe and wonder lost now
In every day’s refrain.

The goodness that you speak of,
The gentleness inside–
Are not supposed to show now
Like children, they must hide.

In fact, I’m almost sure now,
It’s all just a mistake–
The one you seek is sleeping
And never will awake.

A thousand years or so now,
There used to be a time
When summer days were boundless
And mountains he would climb.

Those days were days of wonder
When life and dreams were one;
Of innocence and freedom
Beneath a golden sun.

Those days are gone forever.
How could they now return?
How could you find within me
The me for which I yearn?

I know it must be magick,
Enchantment, if you please;
You see so deep within me–
Or maybe you just tease!

Within my thoughts sequestered
I sought to find a clue;
I could not find this person–
The one you said you knew.

The things we’d done together;
The parts that I had shared–
Were simply pale reflections
Of just how much you cared...

That’s when I saw the mirror,
Its glint was blinding bright–
And all at once I saw you
Reflecting in its light;

The lovely apparitions
So deep within my heart–
The one you saw reflected
Today, and from the start.

The answer struck as lightning
Descending from above–
The love and goodness in me
Were you, when you gave love.

Author's Notes: We, and espcially our eyes and hearts, are mirrors to others. But the mirrors we are in life can hide, distort, or enhance the beauty we find in others. May the beauty of the Goddess inspire us to do the same as we mirror back the beauty of those around us.
