From the beginning of the world I knew you.
Since time first stirred and the seasons were born
The memory of your mystery called in my veins
Awakening within me the truest memories of my soul.
Centuries pass over me in the blink of an eye
The imprint of your heart reaching through the darkness
And I wonder about that days or lifetimes that stand
Like sentinels between us still.
A thousand years I’ve wandered
Searching the beams of moonlight and fragments of stars
For remnants of you.
How can words begin to express
That which has always been known to the heart?
I feel you etched upon my skin
The familiar thread pulling at my soul;
Untangling my heart.
You are coming;
I can feel you on the breeze.
These ages apart have been the longest, loneliest that I can remember
And they too shall fade
As love weaves light from darkness
Stitching together the well worn tapestries of our spirits
And all that went before dissolves.
Until the day you are in my arms once more
You lie cradled in my heart;
And I am lost in eternal ribbons of memory.
The landscape of time and space is a reminder of your existence
Your place among the heavens as the brightest of stars
The True North that guides this vessel back home once more.
