Face That Wasn't Mine

And when I looked into the mirror

I saw a face that wasn't mine

I looked into the future

Saw a world that wasn't time

I saw the face of a woman

Who's years were spent and done

And looked into the past and knew

I wasn't anyone



And when I looked into the water

I saw a face that wasn't there

A swirling mass of expectation

Without promise, love, or care

And when I looked into my life

I saw a future without a past

When I looked into the mirror

I saw the face I'd never have
