Love Blossoms

I’m picturing our future together

and all I see is painted smiles;

love’s silhouette was captured

and transferred to my face.

You make me so happy

just for being in the picture,

for being there for me

when my memory was fading.

Your love comes across

the embossed, glossy paper;

it bleeds through the sheet

and takes away life’s negatives.

You cropped the darkness from my life

and snipped my jagged edges;

you made me shine through

despite the shades of regret in my past.
