How I Knew


When I first felt the absence of your smile,
Beaming brighter than a million suns,
I cried

When my parents’ stories didn’t check out
And their once veiled tears poured like rushing rivers,
Enough to drown my shelter,
I hurt

When I pondered upon all the conversations we would never have,
And our deep connection the great concrete barrier of language purloined
I regretted

When the memory of your touch
Haunted me
Like a dark light reaching into the deepest crevices of my body
Reminding me of what it once felt like to be held in your arms
I ached

When we finally met again
Through the dimensions of my grief
I told the everlastingly blue sky
That we would never be apart,
Even if it meant us being alone together,

It was then I knew,

I love you.
