You Must Know I Only Uttered I Love You Once - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

speaking of love, yes, love, what can i say about love,
i cannot speak it without using the word
you,
it is always you, because without you, love cannot even exist
as a word,
or even a thought or even a waft of air to cool my senses,
without you,
love cannot even exist as a blood cell in my heart
or a vein or a chamber
where love usually sleeps,
it is you,
always it is you that i will always equate with love,
you must know
i only uttered i love you
once, and it was true, and it is still true,
the rest
are the words of the drunk man, the broken heart trying
to relive what was once truly uttered,
reenacting,
imitating but always falling short of the truth
years ago
again the words kneeled before God in an old church
with you
our hands may have clasped in prayer
if you remember
our hands finally found each other
touching and holding tight as i said

i love you

as you said

i love you too

that was many years ago,
truth does not know how to die,
true love lives in that

i love you,

forever, always,
you,

i love you,

wherever you are now,

you
must know,
that is the truth that until now

i live

that until now

i am living and thinking still only of you............
