A Thing About Love

a lingering rose

sometimes I wonder if
maybe you can love someone
for so very long you forget
that every time
they say I love you
they are offering you
their heart

sometimes I wonder if
we forget
that every time
we are offered
our lover’s heart
our lover’s trust in us
faith and belief in us

we need to stop
for just a moment
let ourselves breathe in
the essence of him
as if it were
the very first time

because it is

every time
is the very first time
