What was it about you that set my nerve endings ablaze with only a glimpse of you? What was it about you that catapulted me to another dimension every time you whispered my name?
Was it the way you walked across the room to speak to me when it could have been anyone else? Was it the way you laughed at all my corny jokes with your eyes fully widened? My pupils dilated as well with every consonant and every vowel you used to form a word. A, E, I, O, U and with you it was always Y.
Why did I find it so easy to fall in love with you? Why did you just get me like no other could? I never had to explain myself because you could feel my pain and my joy. You liked me and I could feel it in the confines of my being! It was as if you and I were lovers in a past life somehow!
Why did my heart exalt with jubilee when you laid your arm gently over my naked shoulder? Every touch led to every kiss that answered the only question I often asked myself. Could I love again? Did I want to?
Feeling your warmth awakened in my soul the forgotten memory of us already knowing one another. I had just met you but my soul had never forgotten you. It was you I had been waiting for! Perhaps other loves had failed because I had to be single to meet you. I’m so happy! We did it. We finally found our way back home to one another!
But where are you right now? What is your name? Have I already met you? It’s only a dream right now but I know you are out there. I can just feel it! Please don’t wait! Come close and whisper in my ear! Let me feel your warmth and your touch for you know how to awaken my soul’s memories! Come! I am waiting for you!
