I stare at the abyss of the mirror,
with the unknown figure looking back at me,
he utters no words, he shares no laughter.
Eyes wide, missing the link,
the once proud tether between the heart and soul,
I stand and listen for the few words of wisdom.
And as the single tear drops from his lifeless eyes,
there I can see it,
beneath all that sorrow and pain,
still like a loving heart beats.
