Why Do I Love You So? - Poem by Ray Lucero

A rhetorical question to be sure

I love you because;
My heart raced the very first time I met you
There was something strangely familiar in your eyes
A memory from some other time and place

A lightning bolt struck my heart…
My heart etched with your name forever

Our first kiss was sublime and like no other
Alas, we were too young to consummate our love

I left to make my way in life
You stayed behind to continue education

Others came and went for both of us
You with yours, I with mine

Young hearts torn apart by time and distance
Hearts aching for what was cruelly taken

Only distant memories remain;
Yet, love has granted consolation
You live in my very soul
