The Very Reason

Written by: Mike Walsh

Here is how I give my love
the things I see below,
could not be
without the way you changed my world.

You showed the mirror glass to me.
So one life; one world
would float upon the other
and by hearts fold in reverse.

Soon the story of your fear
will come then seep
into the wounds
you help me carry.

Earth will shift a small degree,
your soft down wings,
they make
no mark or sound;

they lead up to a high place,
and gently show to me
the very reason
why we love.
