A Poem for My FutureLove

I know not who
you are,
I only know I
have not met
you
only dreamed of you
a thousand times
perhaps a thousand thousand
each time awakening with the longing
of those
dreams
suspended
in flight
like swans caught motionless
in air

In each dream
I see you
dark-haired
in the
light room
your long hair cascades silently
slowly over
your soft
shoulders

You turn to meet
my gaze
like looking into an eternal
mirror
the back
and forth reflection
when two mirrors face
eachother
endless

Know this
my love
my dearest one
I have dreamed
of you
acrosstime
acrossspace
perhaps even
before you were
born
and always
this familiar feeling wells up
within me
like that
choked up and lost
feeling at the end
of a tragic
romance
in the theater of the mind

One day
you will know you
only you
are the one
who holds my heart like Prometheus
held the torch
carrying it bright and burning
into the heart of the
people
giving it
away
like it was
nothing

You will know this
by my eyes
the way
they gaze at you
endlessly
stretching on
to infinite
tomorrows

You will know this
my future love
by these words
gently whispered into
your sleeping ears:

I am yours
I was yours
before you ever knew it
and I will remain yours even after you
have forgotten
it
there is no way
to break
our circle
even reincarnation
will bring us together again and
again
and forever
more
no amount of more
will ever fullyfill
this universe
of mylove
for yourlove
which now becomes
as I set these words
to ink
as I will oneday
caress these words
in flesh
into your skin
as I
will
one
day
whisper
these
words
sleeping
into
your
ear

Awaken
my love
from that futuredream
I am here
waiting
to whisper
these
words into
your conscious mind
these are
my only
vows
to love you
across all space
and
time
please
do not
forget
