Since Before I Read Your Poems

Since before I read your poems
I have loved you,
since before I found your soul
repeating my thoughts
prior to when I uttered them
I have loved you,
since before your face
walked the depths of my heart
I have loved you.

I have loved you before our time was born,
I have loved you before the sky was formed,
I have loved you before the stars settled
into the universe and found at last their names.

I have loved you before either of us knew of love,
I have loved you before you were aware of our connection,
I loved you before when silence was the only companion
who shared the journey of my days.

So ask me not what this moment brings
when you cross my thoughts
with a slight smile played
upon the fingers of my words,
ask me not for this is an instant
where all that is required of us is to listen
to the sound of Solomon's harbinger
wafting idly the wings of Sheba's dreams
while your reflection observes
in the teacups of my existence
an offer of the surety that at such a time
a breeze breaks the most sardonic of quiets

with the whisper I have loved you.
