Purged Understanding

© Eva Marie Cagley

As I wiped away

The moist dewdrops

Falling from your eyes,

I saw you sinking

Trying to hide your loneliness

That I could now feel.

Falling into a flooding river

Breaking down my dam

After years of construction

Flowing into you once more

I see a reflection of my soul,

Mirrors of your emotions

And lost dreams of tomorrow!

I felt the sorrow,

Engulfing us with one

Strong current

Having purged understanding

And I knew for the first time,

When I said, "I love you,"

What those words really meant.
