Was There Time Before Us?


Before there was us...
Was there ever a time before we were one?
If so, my heart doesn't want to remember it.
Forever started the day you came into my life,
quietly and unobtrusively. 
All of a sudden you were there,
and just noticing your presence made me smile.

I don't want daylight to end
because sleep seems like such 
a wasteful way to spend time since you appeared.
I don't want to miss a moment 
with you in it, and I fight sleep 
until it overtakes me, and the last thing
I remember when I wake up
is hearing your soft voice as 
my eyelids fluttered over my eyes,
and finally shut out the light.

Now that there is an us,
we measure time in sleeps 
until we are together again,
and we measure time not at all 
when our hearts and bodies come together,
for counting minutes then seems 
to make time fly too quickly.

If only time could stand still when we are one,
and speed up in its flight when we are apart.
If only...

To wish for anything more than what we have
is an exercise in futility.
So tonight, I am grateful for 
your love, your devotion, and the promise
of a future together with you.
