I look at those eyes, staring deep into mine.
They make me feel safe, comfortable.
I can see all the love there is to give.
Those eyes have seen so much.
Loving families, children laughing,
Newborn babies coming into the world.
Beautiful sunsets and sunrises.
They have also seen bad things.
Fathers dying, children crying,
Wars and famine over the world.
But those eyes reassure me that all is well.
Bad things happen, but life goes on.
There is always another beautiful sunrise.
Then I turn away from the mirror,
And walk away.
