363 The Morning I Came to Love You [24 December 2000]

In the cool morning brightness,
with the snow falling lightly,
water freezes quickly,
almost as soon as it collides with the air.
I watch the road as I drive over it,
the snow walking across the cold pavement.
My mind is full of you
as this moment is forever locked
within the cache of my memories.
I wonder what you are doing at this very moment,
where you are now,
how you would have enjoyed this peaceful moment in time,
when my favorite song drifts from the speakers to my ears,
the world around us white with winter in its prime.
It seems like I’ve known you forever.
Your voice, your name, your beautiful eyes.
Yes, I know you.
I don’t know how,
maybe from meeting you in my dreams.
I wish you were here with me,
sitting beside me bundled against the biting cold,
riding with me along this highway.
It was strange how suddenly life changed
when I realized I loved you.
I noticed the patterns the snow made
as it walked in the wake of the passing cars.
The way the world seemed at its end
yet, at the same time
at its beginning.
How the trees appeared more majestic
in their white cotton cloaks,
the fields covered in their white satin blankets.
This awakening brought my eyes open,
to see the world in all its beauty,
to see you in all your beauty.
To long for your touch,
to long for your comfort, your company.
I love you. . .
It is as simple as that.
This moment will ride in my memory forever,
the whitened road stretching before me like my future,
knowing you are thinking of me as well,
hoping that you love me as well.
