eyes staring back,
eyes that used to be like mine,
once upon a time
when the cold stole me
from this human life.
wait and linger
before disappearing into the dark.
I know these names,
their human faces, their stories.
They were once my family.
They’re all lost,
hidden behind fur coats and dirty paws.
Now, I wait for her,
when I am not one of them, not anymore,
where I am
I look for her,
now at winter’s mercy,
with those loving eyes
appearing through the trees.
Waiting is the only thing I can do,
alone on this other side of the mirror,
in this life
that should have been ours,
while clinging to hope
like it’s the only thing I have left.
