Captured 3/13/13

There is a moment when the sides of your mouth
curl up to make perfect parentheses around your smile
simultaneously, it emerges from your eyes
only to spill down your face like happy tears
to wash away any doubts I ever had

There is a moment when I awaken and realize
you are there beside me arms so long they wrap around
entirely, guarding me from nightmares
that have plagued me for so many years
to keep me safe for the first time

There is a moment when words fail to leave lips
when a kiss or breath is the only way to communicate truly
how full my heart feels when drenched
in the pools of my reflection within your eyes
when I let myself relax and believe them
