The Moment*

What was the moment
When I fell in love with you?

Was it when
A gentle breeze swept
Your tresses across your beautiful face?

Was it when
You shook off the pearly raindrops
From your long silken hair?

Was it when
A hint of a smile crossed your lips
As you awakened from a midnight’s dream?

Was it when
You strode out, confident
As if to declare, “I am going to conquer the world?”

Was it when
You held my hand so tight
As if to say, “I trust you with my life?”

Was it when
You buried your head into my chest
In your moment of profound grief?

Was it when
You held me in your arms
And assured me, “All is not lost, I am still here for you?”

Was it when
I suddenly realized
That my life has meaning only because of you?

Was that the moment
When I fell in love with you?
