Sonnet for my beloved

Tonight it sunk in, I finally saw
I could see with your eyes for the first time
The truth was kept from me, brutal and raw
I kept it from me, it was my own crime

Tonight it made sense, those years spent in fear
Fearing the mirror, that brutal judgement
Your voice in my head, the words I can hear
Enlightenment, now I knew what you meant

You see what I never dared to believe
You see what I considered disappeared
Having lost it, I thought I had to grieve
A future of sadness I would have feared

I get it now, I can see what you see
As I can see your beauty, you see me…
