The Look…

Fourteen years ago our eyes first met,

a connection realized.

Across the room we held each others gaze

accepting the gift we found that day.

Slowly through the masses we moved towards the other,

heart racing uncontrollably.

The crowd seemed to part as we approached,

no obstructions to love.

A brief instant, frozen in the mind,

the smile that welcomed me.

A quiet voice inside prompting,

“my name is Mike and I’d really like to meet you”

spilled out before I was aware.

From that day we’ve never looked back or elsewhere…

as Rumi said, “Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere,
they’re in each other all along.”

I believe that.

Happy Valentines Day my love.

    Always the poet… Happy Valentine’s Day to you as well. BTW… You said, “My friends call me Fish” and I thought “Really? Fish?” And the rest is history…
