Reflections of Life
In still water shine
To reach my eyes.
The life is mine.
Ripples flow
From side to side,
And the puddle of life
Forms its own tide.
Through the water
The waves flow
Carrying the images
To and fro.
Back and forth
My life does wash
And before my eyes
I see the cost;
The cost of life,
The pain and loss,
But the rewards
Were worth the cost.
The rewards are harder
To see somehow.
They're under the water
Buried in the bow
Of a sunken ship of memory
Forever protected
On the bottom of
The puddle of life.

This has got to be my favorite one yet !! There are several lines in here that really make this beautiful and almost haunting....very nicely done - I like how your poetry just starts "flowing" into a story, and by the time you finish it, you do so with a bang ! very nice....
