Mirror


Mirror mirror
On the wall
Who's the fairest of them all

Mirror mirror
You show the face
Of a girl from another place

Mirror mirror
I want to be her
She's got it all I'm sure

Mirror mirror
What's the name
Of this beautiful girl who puts me to shame

Child dear child
Oh can't you see
That girl isn't who you wanna be

Child child
That beautiful girl
She wanted the world
She asked for a lot
But the world is what she got

Beauty and fame
People knew her name
Envious girls and adoring boys
She thought she had all the joys

But there was something missing from her heart
Something keeping her apart

Mirror mirror
Who is she?
I ask once more

My child my child
Can't you see?
The strong resemblance between you and she?

Girl dear girl
She's the one standing there
Looking in this mirror combing her hair

Mirror mirror
I think I see
But how can it be?
Is that sad girl me?

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
