one hand just skims the surface of the mirror.
it's my face and the veil falling in front of it.

but it's time to let the cover disappear.

you reach for the veil and lift it off of my face.
"it's time to become one together."

when i looked in the mirror, i was no longer there.
but you were.

i turned around to ask you questions,
but you weren't standing there behind me.

i became one with you and made into your image
you let me see myself the way you see me.

covered by you.

and i smile at the thought as my bare feet touch
the glass floor, every step reflecting you.
