Ode for mslily and others me included!!!! m

i peered at my reflection

in the waters edge i see,

a shadow of a face

peering back at me.

ripples in the water

distorted views unknown,

of this shadow floating

from the waters down below.

who is this vision lurking

her eyes so deep in debt,

her soul it seems so empty

don't think we've ever met.

i turn my head to view her

the shadow will not stay,

rippling waves of water

make her slowly drift away!!

i perceive in her much doubt

of what her life has meant,

what has she accomplished

with the years that she was lent.

though her roads were traveled

with the choices she had made,

she felt so unhappy

for time had slipped away.

just then i felt the sun

as it beat upon my frame,

the wind blew thru my hair

calling out my name!!!

the blue skies opened wide

as god looked down on me,

and the ripples in the water

came smiling back at me!!!

its' not what i've secured

its' not money,its' not fame,

its all those roads i've journeyed

and the woman i became!!

as i gazed upon the waters

the ripples now in place,

what i see is satisfaction

as i looked into my face!!

This is the one that I printed out so I could compose some music for it!! I just now found it again in my folder of ideas. Now that you've reminded me, I'll see if I can make some time to do it!! Thanks Gabby for all your work in finding Mindy's odes!!
