For Sammi’s Word Prompt

Mirror

I look in the mirror, and what can I see,

A face I don’t know staring at me.

Where is that child who played in the mud?

Or jumped in the puddle just because.

I look in the mirror, I pretend that I see,

another face staring at me,

Where is the little girl with plaits in her hair,

singing songs in an out of date flair,

I look in the mirror and what do I see,

Wrinkles, grey hair; an older version of me,

I look in the mirror and what do I see?

Me.
