Reflections

Reflections in the water completed the circle.
Reflections of him and her when they were young.
Reflections of him and her when they were old
And every age in between.

She came to the lake alone one day.
Three days before their anniversary day.
She looked into the water and
She stood alone.

She picked up a rock and
Threw it in.
The ripples broke her image
Into indecipherable curves
Until at last it was still.

Reflections in the water completed the circle.
Her reflection no longer stood alone.
His reflection stood beside hers.
He took her hand and
Whispered “Know that I love you.”

She looked to him.
But he was gone.
And the reflection in the water completed the circle.

Reflections of him and her
When they were young.
Reflections of him and her
When they were old
When the were every age in between.

Her daughter came and
She touched her arm.
And the reflection in the water completed the circle.
The circle of him and her
And their child.
