Gathering the pieces of you

Broken mirrors you feared

Supposed seven years of bad luck

Born with shards for a life path

No escaping the mirrored fate

Despite the shards, you lived

Despite the shards, you gave

Broken mirrors, fractured self

Saw a monster watching in the dark

didn’t run but didn’t stare long

The ghost lingers in the mirror

Despite the shards, you lived

Despite the shards, you gave

Disparate images valiantly commandeered

Down and out but not stuck

Fate incurred your wrath

And broken mirrors, your hate

Despite the shards, you lived

Despite the shards, you gave

Always true to thy self

You bore life’s stretch mark

Always singing a love song

Your whole being couldn’t be clearer

Despite the shards, you lived

You loved

You were

Now you are gone

And I am proudly gathering up the pieces of you
