    She=He=Love=Them=Togetherness
    it seems like perfect bliss
    but….are they truly connected
    is the bond erected, from impenetrable material
    or is it taken for granted
    do they wake up each morning
    thankful, and wanting to
    cherish
    another glorious day
    sublimely entwined in the
    heart, soul, body, and mind
    of that most significant other

    Brother, question….
    do you love her?
    do you tell her every chance you find,
    is she linked into the depths of you
    like action is linked to time?
    do you focus your most valuable attentions
    to making her feel how you feel?
    I guess the simplification of my lengthy equation is
    does she know it’s for real?

    Sister, question….
    does he accentuate your worth?
    did you get a chill of joy, fulfilled,
    when what you share had it’s birth?
    can you honestly say
    that right now, today,
    he’s your all, and you for him, the same?
    love’s flame eternally burning
    in you,
    his image trailing along with
    every thing that you do,
    knowing love is more
    than some word,
    is a dream that’s come true,
    does this sum up what he means
    to you?

    She=He=Love=Them=Togetherness
    the ability to weather this storm,
    to share that dream,
    to stimulate each other
    to each other’s core
    receiving and giving,
    being satisfied more and more,
    because you’re glowing
    knowing that your feelings keep growing,
    soaring to heights you’ve never reached,
    showing no signs of slowing,
    he/she infinitely touches the tapestry
    of all your greatest affinities
    you’re affectionately glued
    to each other’s center
    and that’s the beauty
    of true
    symmetry

    Baller-if every couple had your "Symmetry", then divorce could become extinct. This was a very beautiful and insightful poem. Wonderful.
