half a sonnet for you

the day is a mirror
                                   it speaks in silence
only the two of us
                                   can still remember 
to laugh and laugh
                                   for  we can  laugh 
at almost anything
                                     unmastered, wild
the sun at our backs
                                     light in our eyes
our old life merely
                                     strings of memory
this new life yet
                                     in uncharted sands

Note: 14 half lines; about five syllables each. Kind of like one of those necklaces each one gets to keep half of.
