The mirrored pond of true reflection

Casts not its gaze on me

For there within, there’s no perfection

Of which mine eyes can see

 

Upon each ripple, go taken glances

My eyes, they searched for sure

But lost to waves, were life’s romances

A heart that once was pure

 

She danced with me, gazed in my eyes

She told me it would last

I found the truth, to my surprise

That love would die out fast

 

There, in my face as age persists

The lines, my brow’s now worn

My looks had changed, she could resist

As from my heart, love’s torn

 

So, on to this pond, I stare again

My eyes, alone, look back

I see her love was just pretend

As now, the pond turns black
