Your Face

To the one I love,

As you daily peer into this mirror
Be reminded my love, the face you behold
Is mine.

Look intently at your lips
Gatekeepers to my mouth
And do recall, every smile they curve
Is mine.

See the look in your eyes
Windows to my soul
And rest assured, everything they desire
Is mine.

Take a glimpse at your nose,
Sculpted to give vent to my heart
And understand, the air they breathe
Is for me.

I lay claim to this face,
With the heavens at my backing,
So, grasp this, I implore
Your face and all that escorts it
Is for me.
