 MIRRORS OF LIFE

THE MIRRORS OF MY LIFE



THE MIRRORS OF MY LIFE
HAVE ABOUT COME TO PASS
THE FINGERS OF LOVED ONES
CURL TO ME FROM THE GLASS

AS I SET HERE AND PONDER
THE DEEDS I HAVE DONE
SOME NOT SO GOOD
PERHAPS, THE MOST JUST FOR FUN!

WHILE ADDING IT ALL UP
I'VE LIVED A GOOD LIFE THREE CHILDREN ALL GROWN
AND I STILL HAVE THE SAME WIFE.

OH, I GUESS I HAVE TASTED
AND TESTED THE WIND,
AND THERE ARE SOME PLACES
I SHOULD NEVER HAVE BEEN

I WEIGHED IT ALL
AS I WATCHED IT ALL PASS
THE MIRRORS OF MY LIFE
STORED THERE IN THE GLASS

EACH TEST OF COURAGE
WAS JUST ONE STEPPING STONE
TO CARRY ME FORWARD
CLOSER TOWARD HOME

TO REACH ALL I LONGED
AND DREAMED FOR IN MY PAST
OH GOD, LET ME THIS ONE TIME
NOT SHATTER THE GLASS!
