I Will Love You Now

I will love you now

Little blossoms I will

Hold you kiss you

Inhale you

Now until there are no more nows

Because only a paper thin wall

Lies between us

And nothing

And nothing walks behind us

With its hands on our shoulders

Ready for the bombs or collisions

Or moments of anger

Or simple broken heart

So I will love you now

In our tiny moments

That matter

And let the looming dark remember

Every touch

Every kiss

Indelibly created for us

Song for the broken hearted

Love is never lost

Never erased

It lives in the cells that remember

Touch breath embrace

The light whisper 

the laughter

It lives on in the patterns of light that flash

Through our inner darkness

It formed the pathways

Birthed this future out of darkness

Love is never lost

It is captured in memory

And more that memory in form

It lives in our every transaction

In how we smile how we sing

It lives in the shape of our growth

Like the wind in the shape of a twisting branch

Like sunlight in the reaching trunk

Love is never in vain never

Futile never meaningless

It’s fact is solid

Solid as death

Love once given cannot be taken

From us it lives in our existence

Like dna coiling through the whole

Like starborn atoms indivisible from the past

And from our futures

Spreading weblike into everything we touch

Love is never lost
