Sometimes Lovers, Sometimes Friends

How many times will I look across a crowded room

and you are there?

How many times will I walk around a corner

and you are there?

How many lifetimes will I have to live before

you are no longer there?


Reasons? Seasons? Beats the hell outta me!

What have these encounters taught me.....? Ha!


You would think by now

.....To be careful with my heart.

You would think by now

.....Not to look into those eyes.

You would think by now

.....To take a deep breath and run.


Yet I don't and won't......

My soul knows yours...... Oh! So well!


My ears know the sound of your voice calling me

.....I respond

My fingers know every line and curve, ache to touch

.....I reach out.

My eyes recognize the spark, shining through yours

.....Promising eternity.


Sometimes lovers, sometimes friends,

This time both.....


I close my eyes, wondering.....

Is this the lifetime it will end....

Or will the promise of eternity

Always be ours?


Cecelia
