A Mutual Kind of Thing


What is this special feeling, this rare connection

that we’ve known and cherished for so long?

Precious and secure, the love abiding in our hearts,

hopeful and persuaded that it’s forever strong.


From first a fondness to a friendship,

I have adored you from the start.

Then came pure and sweet affection,

a long embrace and I offered you my heart.


Our attraction so instinctive,

like second nature you might say.

One gentle, tender touch is all it takes

to sweep ourselves away.


Loving hearts and minds in sync together,

not by chance, but surely by design.

Our intense devotion ruling every realm

as when two brilliant stars align.
