reflection

a partner sees the best in you
a companion sees the relationship
a lover sees the sweetness and care
but a reflection of you sees,
and seeks to see the true you.

that reflection of yours
will and will try to understand,
for the happiness of you
is the happiness of your reflection too.

that reflection of yours
not just sees the best in you,
not just your best days,
but more of your worst days.

that reflection of yours
not just sees the relationship,
not just himself self-centeredly,
but more of your happiness and delight.

that reflection of yours
not just sees the sweetness and care,
not just the love and affection shown,
but more of the inner understanding.

that reflection of yours seeks
nothing but the whole and true you--
no pluses and no minuses--
just you...
