Letter to the Editor: The Woman in the Glass

Published December 19. 2009 09:00AM

Dear Editor:

This poem, authored by Peter Dale Wimbrow Sr. , has been modified from Its original content.

When you get what you want in 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

Whose judgment upon you must pass

The lady whose verdict counts most in your life

Is the one staring back from the glass.

She's the lady to please - never mind all the rest

For she's with you, clear to the end

And you've passed your most difficult, dangerous test

If the woman in the glass is your friend.

You may fool the whole world down the pathway of years

And get pats on the back as you pass

But your final reward will be heartache and tears

If you've cheated the woman in the glass.

As years went by she has passed the most divine and final test.

In her struggle for life she struggled to please not herself.

But her family, friends who she sincerely tried to please.

The woman who stared at her in the glass wouldn't dare to ask a trivial thing from her family or friends

She had managed day by to look at the woman in the glass

And Her divine satisfaction was just knowing that she was just truly your friend to the end.

Yes this incredible woman is our friend indeed. And We are truly Honored to have known and had the opportunity to share in this life of this truly magnificent woman Sharon Joseph who was always truly a friend indeed.

She will always be in our hearts.
