    when you smile, i smile
    when you sing, i sing
    when you laugh, i laugh
    when you cry, i can't see;

    when i look in the mirror
    i see you shining bright
    for you are my reflection
    the inner beauty of me;

    there is nothing you go through
    that i do not experience too
    for my spirit danes with yours
    to the melodies of the heavens;

    i adorn you like the coat of Joseph
    proud of all the glory and virtue
    standing strong in the assurance
    that our agape love conquers all

    my breathing is concurrent with yours
    as i rest in the garden of serenity
    and i smile when i watch the tulips
    make way for your eternal arrival;

    your reflection appears when my eyes
    are closed and your presence touches
    me when my dreams appear but through
    all the thoughts love keeps me at peace;

    i love you with the equation of God...

    i celebrate you as David praised the
    arrival of the Ark of Covenant for i know
    the when i open its lid the covenant i find
    will be poured out through a blessed vessel

    who is you...

    the beauty

    is bound up in the solemnity of this vow. I am moved by many verses, this one particularly touched me: "when you cry, I can't see"....

    D-Mo, thank you for the awesome word pictures wrapped in Biblical/spiritual images...I can see David dancing before the Lord, in praise and thanksgiving for the safe return of the Ark of His Covenant.

    Nothing brings tears of joy like a man who receives the safe return of his woman~ Rejoicing!

    And so it shall be,
    Amen
