Excavating the Archives: The Light and Dark of You

 

I see the light in your smile

And the dark in your eyes

Weaving together tales

Of love and loss

A heart that has swelled with joy

And broken with anguish

A lifetime of living

Etching experience

On the fabric of you

And if I look carefully

Study you with the attention you deserve

I’ll uncover your secrets, as

I see the light in your smile

And the dark in your eyes

Remembering this is only the beginning of your story…

The Light and Dark of You

I see the light in your smile

And the dark in your eyes

Weaving together tales

Of love and loss

A heart that has swelled with joy

And broken with anguish

A lifetime of living

Etching experience

On the fabric of you

And if I look carefully

Study you with the attention you deserve

I’ll uncover your secrets, as

I see the light in your smile

And the dark in your eyes

Remembering this is only the beginning of your story…
