Where Do You and I Begin Love by Jake Aller

 

 

I woke up one day and realized

I no longer knew

where you and I began

 

and where you and I ended

we had become almost one

 

We talked in half sentences

Knowing what the other wanted

and knowing how it would end

 

We ate the same foods with some resistance

because I still crave an old fashioned American meal

but still we were becoming more and more the same

 

and I was scared of loosing myself

In your embrace

 

and becoming you

and you becoming me

 

and this fear of losing me

in the ocean of us

overwhelms me at time

 

but I know that I will always

Return to your arms

 

because I cannot live

A moment without you at my side

 

and I know you are the same

we feel each other’s inner pain

we feel each other’s outer pain

 

and our history has merged

into one

 

and is that the secret

of a long marriage?

 

Have I figured it all out

in the end does it come to this?

a merging of two souls and two bodies?

 

I don’t have the answers

But I don’t have any more doubts

or regrets at the path I have taken

 

I still look forward

to waking up each

 

Seeing you there

and knowing that everyday

 

we have together

is a gift that I will cherish

Until my dying breath
