A Little Known Fact

A Little known fact -
For a while I've realized such beams lit upon my face
Were present due to no other one than you

And while I like to jest about how horrible you are,
I could not ask for anyone more delightful

So listen -
This is no mere poem,
It is a fact - and a fact, as you know,
Must indeed be true
But would you believe me?

Aside from what logic provides,
I fear I may lose that beam - yes, lose it!
So before your departure becomes truth,
I must quickly relay to you this -

That I am a mirror
And all of the praise you have graciously granted me,
To create such beams of laughter and smiles,
Are reflections of you - yes, you!
I am just the mirror
And you are the delight

And that -
That is a little known truth

.....as the package becomes slighter, the gift becomes brighter....amongst thousands of words, a thought becomes lost....i once wrote a girl in middle school a note on a Wrigley's chewing gum wrapper. i wrote; "You are so beautiful !". In twelfth grade at the prom, she asked me to dance with her, while we danced she handed to me this crinkled old little paper insisting that i read it. It was that wrapper with those few words i wrote. She smiled and kisssd me and returned to her date! *winkx p.s....Dina rushed back to me in her satin lavender gown gasping, and asked for her little note back *sm
