mirror mirror



¿Qué veo yo en el espejo?
Una cara familiar y unas cuantas arrugas.
Sonrío. No me desagrada.
¿Qué ve ella?
Una niña que ya no necesita chupete.
Ha crecido.
Le gusta la idea.
¿Y ella?
Una niña con una bici nueva y grande.
Ha aprendido.
Disfruta.
El verano avanza.

What do I see in the mirror?
A familiar face and a handful of wrinkles.
I smile. I'm pleased.
What does she see in the mirror?
A girl that doesn't need a dummy anymore.
She's outgrown it.
She likes the idea. She likes herself.
And what about her?
A girl with a new big bike.
She's learnt to ride it.
She's enjoying it.
Summer moves on.
