He walked into the mirror


He walked into the mirror

He

Himself

Alone

An old man looking back at him

He examined the man

Asked the question

Who are you

Are you real

Have I seen you before

What are you doing here

Where did you come from

You remind me of someone

A person from somewhere

Did I ever know you

Are you my imagination

You are so old

Ugly

But I know those eyes

I have seen them before

Beyond this place

Beyond this time

Not in a valley of riches

But in a life that was full

And I lived it

Over and over

To the full

And it overflowed

Into a tomorrow

That tomorrow would never come

But it has come

Is now

And will be
