Were We Here? - Poem by JeanPierre Barakat

Were we here
Before the moment past
When time was not so fast
And love was all we could feel?

Were we here
Before all the causes
When jasmines and roses
Scents sprayed peace in our fear?

Were we here
Before the moon or the sun
When the only light that shun
Was the glance as our lips drew near?

Tell me, were we here?
Were we?
