Cancer Reflections

Mirror, Mirror On the Wall

Mirror, Mirror on the wall
Who is this that I see?
I'm not the girl from weeks ago
I want to find that me

I ask myself each day and night
Where did my old self go?
But maybe there is light ahead
I'm hoping this is so

I can't deny the dread ahead
When I stare back at me
How long will this go on and on
Until I feel more free?

The pain and sutures in my chest
Please give me hope I pray
I still can't look too close, O mirror
Please heal my heart this day!
