Reflection

I remember when we fell in love

that instance I stopped avoiding your gaze

Our eyes met and I smiled

Accepting your view of me.

There was no judgment in your glance

No scrutiny

No agenda

Just you

Staring back at me

The hint of a smile in the corner

of your mouth

In that moment I knew you loved me

and I loved you

You see

I remember the exact instant

when I fell in love with you

Allowed myself to be worthy of your love

Now

every time our eyes meet

I smile

Because now

I cannot remember a moment

when I did not love you

and I laugh

with the woman

in my

reflection
