Memories Between Two Mirrors - Poem by Syed Ahmed Shah
'No pain is permanent, only their memory is....' (Song of Mon Fokeer)
When I was young and uneasy
I used to play this irritating game...
I used put my face between two mirrors
And tried to count the images
Till my eyes ached and
I could not hold the mirrors steady anymore...
It was a plain stupid experiment
As I learnt from my physics teacher years later...
'One cannot count infinity, you dummy! '
Now I am trying to remember
My memories of you
Placed between two mirrors....
