~A Friend In Me~

She looks back at me...
not knowing what to say.
Once again we meet like this,
nearly the same time as yesterday.

She seems unsure of herself,
I don't think she feels at ease.
She looks as though ... she'd like to go,
speaking so softly, I cant hear her pleas.

I don't know why she's here,
or what she wants with me.
Yet, here we stand face to face...
hoping for a sign that we both can see.

I feel as if I know her,
like I have met her, once long ago.
There is something familiar about her...
like a well kept secret, only I should know.

She says she'd like to be my friend--
if I would just let her be.
Trust like this...I don't do well...
its always come hard for me

Maybe if I ask her...
I could try and invite her in.
Perhaps I could even learn to like her...
she is my reflection, my Gemini twin.

Janet Marie





 When you look in the mirror...
Wish you were somebody else
Just a perfect reflection
You and no one else...
Minutes run into hours
Hours run into days
You're still waiting for someone
Who never ever came...
Go and run through the hallways
Find your way to the door
You will end up like always
Back where you were before...
Then you look in the mirror
Wish you were somebody else
But it's still your reflection
You and no one else...

I figured that was where you were heading, don't ask me how??   We all have a similar friend within us, less courageous, shy etc.
Well done Janet Marie  

 At night the moon became a face,
I met the spirit of life,
the spirit of love and music. And I am better for it.

Well, I had no idea where this was going.  My imagination was getting the best of me all through it.  Good poem, Janet.

I never regret the day I let my friend in, or a couple of my Gemini twins as well
