How Could We Have Ever Known?A real life love poem.

For Valentine’s Day.

For love. For a wedding. For my wedding.

For my beautiful wife. From almost 24 years ago. 

She’s still the best.  Happy Valentine’s Day, sweetie!

The best thing I ever did.  How could we have ever known?

 

How Could We Have Ever Known?

 

How could we have ever known

that a smile would bring us to this moment?

Love has called us—a wondrous song—

sometimes weak and sometimes strong,

inevitably, inexorably to this moment.

 

How could we have ever known

that a kiss would bring us to this moment?

Gleeful giggle, enchanted glance,

serendipitous circumstance,

united bring us to this moment.

 

How could we have ever known

that a touch would bring us to this moment?

Improbable union, symmetrical hearts,

paradoxical whole, sympathetic parts,

together bring us to this moment.

 

Sound the trumpets!

Bang the drum!

All the Loves of all the Ages

urge us now to turn the pages

but remind us still from whence we come:

a smile, a kiss—a love begun;

two hands joined now are one.

Fields now fertile,

seeds now sown:

how could we have ever known?
