in the silent mirror a reflection of love stares
a glass figurine emoting radiance with savoir faire'.
a tender smile extends sweet thoughts to cherished hearts engraved
fashioned for Eternity to love on journey paved.
two lights illuminate to feed two souls once were starving
wallowing in Sun's warm glow while Destiny stood carving.
etching future memories lasting far beyond forever
complimenting in every way as words touched too deep to sever.
reflections often resonate both happiness and sorrow
yet, you remain my counterpart for each endless tomorrow.
from first breath to last we contemplate reflective view
believing in our "love story" prefacing with "I Love You".
