Reverie

Springtime nurtures growth and change,
the rich expansion of the world
awakening from its long and silent sleep.
The golden sun kisses the flowers,
the trees put forth their leaves and fruit,
we re-emerge from the solitary confinement of the soul.
I rejoice at your presence in my life
and bask in the warmth of your open admiration.
Your strength and tenderness
bring a smile to my face and peace to my heart,
and I hope that I do the same for you.
For what is love but the sharing of two hearts and minds,
not as identical mirrors but as twin streams flowing side by side
in the same harmonious direction,
eventually to meet in the same sweet pool of understanding?
Let us be lovers, friends and companions
for the rest of the days we shall pass upon this earth,
for what is life without the green sweetness of love?
