Reflections

Today

I saw myself in the mirror

And the mirror smiled at me

A delightful smile

Illuminated by the sun

 

Then your hands

Hands on my chest, soft

And my smile lit up even more

Illuminated by you, my sun

 

And all the rust of my years

Fell to lie on the floor

Detached from my body

And my smile lit up ever more

 

And with the young reflection

Now seen in the mirror

The reflection of your back

And my smile lit up ever more

 

Then my hands, rough

Hands on your back, silk

And your smile lit up

And I lit like a star

 

And our niche the mirror reflected

Like a window to peek through

With the sun illuminating our pleasure

Lighting up, for ever more
