Shiva's Mirror

I step out into the whirling vortex of impressions
and just like that
in an instant,
I forget Who I Am.


So many glances fall my way
luring me to live
the myth
that I am the shell.
And that the shell is
incomplete, imperfect, unlovable.


Until...
I find a mirror...
such as Your eyes.


When I see myself
in Your eyes
I am radiant!
A gem of light!


I fall in love with myself -
how can I not?


And in loving this reflection of me...
shining from Your eyes...


I remember again
Who I truly Am...
