Talks to the reflection

What did you want,
more?
something better than the former?
something later than the letter that
was never sent
did you want
heaven sent?

I have lost and it cost me
I have won and it has done
nothing for me
so I remain
still faithfully
yours,

strange?
life is,
thoughts are,
but
funnily enough
I am content with my lot
and that’s a lot to be thankful
for.
