I saw a glimpse of love, once
Enchanting, kind and sweet
It enveloped me and held me captive
It really does sweep you off your feet
I felt a sense of warm belonging
That humankind does not know
Before this is tasted
A wholeness. A togetherness.
A hopefulness. Completeness
The warm sun bronzed my skin
As his eyes, blue, snared my heart
His smile breathed my soul in and I couldn’t break away from the moment
I remember how we thought alike and laughed the moon back to bed
We had perfect harmony, he and I
I thought it might all be in my head
But I remember his touch late at night
And the twinkling of his eyes.
And I know he felt it too.
Time and circumstance takes away
And I look back with a wistful eye
If not for her, it still would be you and I.
