Reflections of Love and Mercy

now that I have caught sight of the other side of the mirror where someone looks back with pure love, and brown eyes clearer a tenderness in reflection that needs no description other than "I'll be right back" while he slips on old slacks and a jacket over pajamas sticks bare feet into old boots to go out into the frigid night and into the cold slant of ice I hear the hammer of the engine then a cold grinding sound begins and the splashing of rubber tires rolling down the gravel driveway on wind beaten wings that fly on a mission to the pharmacy to buy me scarlet syrup to calm a coughing fury a love with gentle mercy reflected once again, I see it needs no contemplation of vows not forsaken (thank God! ... he is taken!) he's the man that I married
