I Reflect You

There are mirrors in my eyes,
for all to see.
When I look into your eyes,
I see a reflection of me,
When I see youth,
I remember, who I used to be.
When I see maturity,
I wonder, if I could ever be.
When I see smiles,
I see peace and tranquility.
When I see tears,
I only feel empathy.
But, when I see suffering,
I dare not gaze too long,
For fear that my mirrors will crack.
So, when you look into my pain,
Do you also turn away?
