Our Heart

I looked in the mirror,

And made a promise to a girl.


I told her not to be afraid,

I told her never to doubt herself.


She was trapped,

I told her she'd be free one day.


I told her not to worry,

That this world would be kind to her.


I told her I'd do anything to bring her here,

To let her escape.


She looked me right in the eyes,

And she smiled.


She smiled a beautiful smile,

Joyous, beaming, grinning.


She smiled a pure smile,

Not forced, not a hint of sadness.


She cried three tears,

Of unrelenting relief.


And she whispered back,

So quietly.


I got so close to the mirror,

My breath clouded over her lips.


She whispered,

I will be strong


And when I drew back,

The mist of my breath,

Formed a heart,

One heart,

Between the two of us.
