Love Story

by Soyini Denise Liburd

I think of You
and hear Soul Mate
Reverberate through me
My Being
This Love.
Old now, yet ever new
Oh How I Love You!

This Love has made me
virgin again
... only thinking I'd lost me 
Back when love was fun and funky 
... friendship maybe
But darling
Not this thing!
It was NOT this thing!
This thing that rocks my soul
As though the very earth beneath my feet has moved
And I shake ... inside as out.
This shining beauty
Drawing me close 
So that I close my eyes and I am there
and You. 
This certainty that there is WE
and for Me

I am alone without you.
Love weeping inside me
For yearning ... so real.
...becoming fantasy.
Am I weak then, crazy?
Because This Love has found me?
Tell me how to let go, 
Tell me that I should
... that all that could be between us 
is run off, long distant.
Make me believe you.

It is true
That circumstance spin out of control
The Way to You 
closing ... 
... dimming.
But Oh How I Love you!
Surely This has meaning,
Surely Love has meaning ... 
Surely WE have meaning!
You cannot tell me that this Love 
coursing through me
is meaningless
Not this Love... so much more than me, 
so much part of me, so much to me.
Darling, NOT this thing!

There is meaning to WE
Let us find it, 
You and I.
