When Did You First Know…

When did you first know…

That I was in love with you?

Was it in the flush you saw
On my face,
Every time you smiled?

Was it in the stammer,
And stumble,
Of my voice…
Trying to convey a thought
When my mind was totally
Consumed by you?

Was it when you looked at me,
And saw in my eyes
An everlasting longing,
And desire,
And hunger,
To be deeply,
And unmistakably
Committed to you?

Or maybe…


It was when I kissed you
For the very first time…

And looked into your lustrous eyes,
Speaking with my heart,
A language you understood
Without question…

And had always longed to hear.
