footfalls

this quiet time is my time
best time to make friends
with self, make amends
with milling inner residents
~
mirror fills with crushing sadness
strong family resemblance makes
me avert gaze, bringing home
vociferously they are no more
~
yet in this witching hour
neither night nor morning
sounds of faint footfalls make
me realize they stroll in my heart
~
