Always

 

You looked at me with that certain knowing,

Like we had shared memories or inside secrets

Or were friends with the same people,

even though it was our eyes’ first meeting.

I touched your arm and the feeling of always ran through my fingertips

to my cheeks…and heart

in one electric beat.

Like coming alive

when returned to my other half

though this was just our beginning.  

So, we turn the corner with certainty,

hands held in familiar fashion,

walking from what always has been

through what now is

into what always will be.
