Growing reflections

I glanced in the mirror,
to catch an image of me.
Just a shadow of whom,
I used to be.
The little girl
looked back at me.
her dreams were gone,
she grew up, you see.
Her memories were cast,
of a long time ago.
Who knew they would last,
and keep hurting her so?
The past will always be
a part of you.
Its better you see,
than being blue.

Yes, but there are some dreams that get locked away in some corner of the heart and get covered with the sands of time. There are many such desires in an Indian girl's heart.
