Litany of Love (or: the music in your eyes, as inspired by Anita Baker & Stevie Wonder)

“We may never understand
If love just happens or it’s planned…”
–excerpt from Anita Baker’s “Lead Me Into Love”

&
Since
The day, when
I first heard music
In your eyes, in February —

The vision resonates in the chorus
Within…
God Is Love & all things possible; so

Let
No
Man (or
Woman) put
Asunder what

God
Has
In store
For you &
I, together, conquering the world.

& our meeting’s no fluke, with not
A reason to rebuke what’s felt
Natural since that day in February

(As
I…

Pass
By
Your name
Everyday
Though spelled the wrong way…
& know that I have found the one).
