My Mirror!

For me you are my mirror….

There when I see You,

I see what to correct

There when I see You,

You show me how beautiful I am.

And when I hate myself sometimes,

You tell me how much I’m blessed and You make me love myself.

How, at times when I look at my reflection in You,

I notice that it has been You for every pretty little thing I have got.

As I see You a smile spreads over my face.

And there when I gaze at You,

I come to know where I truly belong.
-Ruqaiya Lokhand.

    Ruqaiya, Thank you. You are too kind. This is beautifully written. You have all the germs to be a poet and writer. Not just because you are good at expressing yourself but also because you are thoroughly disciplined and have all your priorities right.
    Keep Writing!
