A resemblance

I thought I saw a resemblance adieu 
An emblem surely of once her youth 
Which did bring a concentrated eye 
Studying each expression brought joy aloud  -
Oh you must be her long lost twin
A sibling or descendant spring from 
fountains found in Aphrodite’s field.
O dreary heart cease thy joy
For once it raptured just as much
 For her when a sudden sorrow bloomed
Because our union she did decline.
Now in front a mirror display 
Of her perfections deeply engrave
In thee whatever your name may be
In obtaining you I’ll gain her too.
