I remember you,
When you were still light
A breath forged from deep within the Universe;
When your shining grace still rested among the stars
And you were etched upon the heavens.
Silently you waited
In the pause between breaths,
Long before this human life began
Before you joined this Earthly realm;
Did you feel me there in the ether,
Where your essence flowed alongside mine in eternity?
Still I feel you tinting my blood somehow
Scattered like stardust in my being
Written on my skin and flooding my every sense.
The ever present mark upon my heart;
The true north that guides my compass home.
You are the sunlight
That illuminates my vision,
And when you set you dance in the twilight
With the moon of my soul.
You are the rising thunder
I can hear in the distance,
Feeling the drumbeat within
Long before I can see you.
Oh, this timeless waltz of ours;
Eons interwoven between our clasped fingers.
Seasons moving like the seas
Endless and eternal like the skies.
How could something so ancient
Be so new in each waking breath?
How could something so familiar
Be so unknown?
How can it be that when lips meet souls become one,
Yet we have been one long before that moment ever arrives?
This spirit deep allowing
Is an opening into the depths of space itself
Trusting in the unfolding
Of the hands of the ages;
A wild merging of the uncertain
With what has always been.
Oh, how these two ships of ours
Flow surely on the same sea;
Feeling on the waters of time
The uncharted way to one another’s shore.
There is a whisper that calls in the wind
Echoing in the ever shifting sands;
A familiar voice sings through my veins
One that I have known since time immemorial:
No matter the distance to travel,
No matter the trials that have been,
No matter the path of this voyage,
No matter the space in between,
I remember you still.
