Staring off into space,
trying to find all my mistakes.
Wondering and planning my next days,
waiting to see what might come to me.
Looking into that face I know
the toll of time is beginning its toll.
Years of trying for nothing to come
the years move more quickly as I grow old.
The do's and don'ts of life I ignored
to be so certain of my own goals.
Watching and waiting just as I was told
but nothing in life except woe.
So, I stare into my own face
asking the questions to myself again.
Did I do right being so sure
or was it just pride that masked itself.
Well looking in the mirror I see myself
my eyes grown blank with no one to share.
My dreams and hopes still there
waiting and watching for me still.
