~ When I Look In The Mirror ~

When I look in the mirror
I see my mother looking back at me
When I look in the mirror
All of me I see

I have found, I can make myself happy
The tears I shed have gone forever
For I now can touch my face
I know who I am and what took place

When I look in the mirror
I know why my eyes are blue
That confusing puzzle, is now out of view
I do not feel any pain
For at last, I see with my whole heart

I have a reason to be here
To help paint "God's Art"
Finally I know how to trust
What is before me
Is a new head start

There was a time I could not see the beauty
Or feel loved by anyone
When I now look in the mirror
I can see the sun

I have so many people who have always cared for me
They wanted what was best so I could fly free
I was loved by many people I know
Some have never met me
Yet my story must be told

When I look in the mirror
I am loved once again
Taken in by those who will always be my friend
I found out, whatever life we've had
We are never a mistake
For God, family and friend, are always there

So the next time I look in the mirror
I will be proud to tell
I am cared for
And loved, so very well.

Linda Ann Henry
Do you remember me
The people's poet

I wrote this poem for all
who are lost, hurt, and feel they are a mistake.
I found out the hard way, God does not make mistakes,
He only makes miracles.
I hope my story will give others the hope they need.
