I see you in the mirror your eyes have tiny lines.
The way you smile back at me the same way every time.
I hear your voice, I hear your laugh the humors just the same.
The way you get so frustrated by the curly hair you try to tame.
The same gentle hands that reach to touch a loved one standing close.
These are all the things I miss and think about the most.
Because it's not you standing there in the mirror that I see.
The woman that's reflected that looks so much like you.. is me.


 With perseverance even the snail reached the Ark.

Lucie,
This one is just tugging on my heartstrings here.  Hand me a tissue, please.  Okay...this is a great piece...so touching and tender.  My Mom died 8 years ago and I miss her everyday.  Excellent writing.  I know exactly how you feel.
Take care,
LW

A beautiful tribute to your mother.  I am very sorry for your loss.  I am sure that she is proud up in Heaven to have such a talented poet as a daughter. This poem reminds me of how my own mom must feel when she looks in the mirror because my Grandma (her mom) died a few years ago and they look so much alike.  Thanks for posting this!  

Take care,
Melissa Honeybee

This is an absolutely beautiful tribute to your Mom, Lucie! I'm sure she's smiling down on you!

There's my girl!  You've gone and made me proud again...   Lucie, this is just beautiful, and I'm glad you chose to share it on such a beautiful day.  The first thing I did this morning, is wake up and call my mom.  I'm pushing 30, but she is still as dear to me, as when  I was 5.  I am so thankful that I can still pick up the phone, and call her.  I know some aren't so fortunate.  Every day that goes by, I thank God above, she is still here with me.  You've done wonderfully with this girl, I'm so glad to see you posting again!  Love you!  Gen
