“ the first time ever I saw your face “
I knew when I heard this line in a song
for the first time it was you,
you were the face I thought of,
the first image to emerge
from the depths of my very soul it was you.
I know that there are very few who believe
in soulmates let alone the idea of having
loved one another in times past.
What do they know, they have yet to accept
the concept of his consciousness.
I know that I felt something this morning,
something that compelled me to look
as you passed.
I knew even in the instance it was you
as time stopped for us to reunite and know
that which we had longed for was real.
And our journey to find each other has another clue
from which we can once again be in each
I cannot wait to hear your voice and listen
to all that you have been through since
our last encounter.
And I have missed the many excursions we have
know and shared in our countless duels
in twisted sheets.
I believe more than any of the times we have
shared it is coffee in the mornings as we
watched the Sun rise.
And witnessed the embrace of light and darkness both
morning and night.
I know that many do not believe that when light
emerged from darkness and it was love at first sight.
Just as he knew it would be.
