Ala Gypsy: For my friend......


I have posted this before....but I`m posting this for a very special person today.........maybe you will read it too.......


The Woman in the Glass
When you get what you want as your struggle for self

And the world makes you queen for a day,

Just go to the mirror and look at yourself,

And see what that woman has to say.


For it isn't your father or mother or husband

Who's judgement upon you must pass;

The person whose verdict counts most in your life

Is the one staring back from the glass.


She's the person to please, never mind all the rest,

For she's with you clear up to the end.

And you've passed your most dangerous, difficult test

If the woman in the glass if your friend.


You may fool the whole world down the pathway of life,

And get pats on your back as you pass.

But your final reward will be heartache and tears

If you've cheated the woman in the glass


by Dale Wimbrow, 1895-1954

It's so true. The only person we can really count on is ourselves. We just have to learn how to be true to ourselves.
