When Did You Know I Loved You?

When did you first know
I loved you?

Was it when I first raked
my fingers through your soul?

Was it when I first looked
in your eyes and described the
formation of the stars?

Was it when I first kissed
you and tried to drink you in?

Was it when I first read you
poetry, shared the flowers that grow
in my pen?

Was it when I first loved you
fully? Took all of you in?

When did you first know
I loved you?

Was it when we danced together,
neither one of us wanted it to end?

Was it when I held your words
in the palm of my hand and held them
like they were more precious than gems?

When did you first know
I loved you?

Was it the day I looked at you
and lost my words, wondered how
I could tell you without telling you
that I loved you. Simply loved you.

Because that’s when I first knew
I loved you. And I knew this love
would never know an end.

Peace & Love,


About Rosalind Guy

I'm broken & my soul is weary/ my weary soul rebels, fights/ anything & anyone who tries to heal me/I beat my head against a wall of memories/ trying hard to break free from the chain of memories/ I can only be free by saying it so/ i weave a necklace from words and finally/ I find freedom/ free free free. As you can see, words are powerful to me. As Maya Angelou said, words are wallpaper of the soul. I have lots of nightmarish memories that threaten to break me, but I learned a long time ago about the power of words. They can be used to heal and destroy anything that threatens to destroy the person. Words coupled with love have the power to save and heal. I am author of three books: Skinny Dipping in the Pool of Womanhood, Tattered Butterfly Wings, and Blues of a Love Junkie. I am a high school English teacher. I am a former reporter. I am a mother. I am a woman. I am a fierce advocate for those who cannot speak for themselves, those who's voices go unheard.
