Shadows of Another Day

The sparkle that she once emitted
Seemed to be, if only temporarily, omitted;

Had her affectionate glow been obliterated?
Dulled by the shadow of the crowd that surrounded her now?

Dare to stand back and take another glimpse
Her love for you still radiates and how;

She watches you while she speaks to the others
Yet, you never catch her eye, and wonder why;

This twinging question is held back from view
She laughs easily as her heart holds only you;

And then you must, admittedly, see it, too
That twinkle;

All your familiar fears are unfounded.
