Galaxies Explode

Seeing your full reflection in her eyes, not silver glass
Beyond a recognition; placed within the highest class
is this love?
The days are bright and warmer; galaxies each night explode
Things unseen in times former, beauty brain-etched in a code
is this love?
Today you are unselfish, finding time though overbooked
For loved ones that you relish; treasures one time overlooked
is this love?
Children you want suddenly, never considered before
Complete your life with family: pets, boys and girls to adore
is this love?
Where earth has winter freezes, summer blood flows in your heart
Wafting tropical breezes, soothing comfort to impart
is this love?
New purpose, meaning and goals; what's important you define
Examine the life paid tolls, whether profane or divine
is this love?
