Something.

Something about you
is something about me;
it swims in your eyes
like a fish in the sea.
A fish with many brothers,
sisters as well,
mothers and fathers,
a whole school in the swell.

Something about me
is something about you –
it wells up in my eyes
when the truth breaks through.
A fish or two differs
from your ocean to mine,
yet count the whole school:
each adds up to divine.

Something about you
is something about me;
it permeates your aroma,
it lives on the breeze.
A primal memory –
when your soul was mine,
when my soul was yours –
outside place or time.

Something about me
is something about you.
In the magnetizing heat
from our hearts, so true,
do you feel it, too…
giving life to us both,
carrying us to heaven,
binding us more
than any oath?
