Mirrored Memories

by Cass Carlton

Mirror Poem Contest Winner 
A face smiles out from gilded frame.
That face and mine were once the same.
Where she went I do not know.
Girl that was me, where did you go?

Girl became wife and then a mother.
A child she bore and then another.
The years swept by in Time's swift flow.
Oh, tell me girl ,where did they go?

Far away now that long ago girl
With springtime skin and amber curl
Now hair is grey and cheeks don't glow
And I miss you girl.Where did you go?
