A Shadow of Me in You

This is to elaborate on the quote my sister shared with me on Facebook today:

“Love is but the discovery of ourselves in others, and the delight in the recognition.” Alexander Smith (Scottish Poet)

This was originally written on the 1st of June, 2008:

There’s a shadow of me in you …
Traces of me in your laughter, your words, your glance.
When God painted you, He put in some of the same colors that He put in me~
Shades that glint and glimmer when we come together …
When our souls slide together like the pieces of a jigsaw.

Our souls dance to the same rhythm,
Our hearts beat to the same cadence.
Two souls with the same passion –
Two pairs of eyes seeking the same object.
Two hands scripting the same story …
Two pairs of feet tapping the same dance.
Two lives so completely alike.

Little things that trigger laughter in us both … and then our eyes lift to find each other’s … a conversation ~ a song ~ a quote ~ a note penned in ink ~ a flower ~ a dream ~ a book …

I see you in me … and I love you all the more because of it.
