Mirror I See you

Mirror I See you short poem

Mirror I saw you once,
You said I am a child,
Blowing bubbles with glee,
Inhibited, yet seeming wild.

And then I looked again,
I was an adolescent,
Aloof from the world
Hours alone, I spent

Time moved on relentless
With challenges, life surged
And again when I saw you,
Another of me emerged.

I clung on to the image,
And moved a little ahead,
Life posed responsibility,
In retrospect, I had conceded.

No time to meander again
Here I stand and stare,
Would you show me future?
Should I even dare?

The cycle of life changes
Harried, I never did realize,
But I hope to see you again
Perhaps, little more wise.
