I SEE MY SELF REFLECTIONS / Poem by Joanna Svensson

Poem by Joanna Svensson

 

I SEE MY SELF REFLECTIONS

I see myself
Through the haze of the past
I often see myself
Like through a veil
Of net that once was

Where shapes and edges
Fade a little bit
When I realize the scarry thought
Of time just rushing on

When I look back at times and me
Old memories come to mind
And now it feels a little diff’rent
Looking back at way back when

When you could read a magazine
When you could write any poem
Independent of light
Independent of time

But today I need help
Today I need glasses
To be able to read
To be able to write

The mirror of time
Reflects my inside
As the one I am
As the one I always was

I see myself
Through the haze of the past
I often see myself
Like through a veil
Of net that once was

Though edges and shapes
Have faded just a bit
The glow of life is still burning
As ever before – as ever before!
