A thousand years, or just today.

I wonder how long I've loved you for
A thousand years, or just today
I wonder how long I've been searching for
A thousand years, or just today
How many continents I've had to walk
Seas too deep to swim
I've wondered how long, wondered how long
Or if we've always been

Your kisses feel polite
Your hands a polished leather
Your body a small mountain
A climb somewhat difficult to wether
But still sometimes I find myself
Dreaming of grey shimmers in your hair
Reminding myself, reminding myself
To "Stop noticing they're there."


I wonder how long I've loved you for
A thousand years, or just today
I wonder how long I've been searching for
A thousand years, or just today
How many continents I've had to walk
Seas too deep to swim
I've wondered how long, wondered how long
Or if we've always been

Life's hopes are fading fast
But once in a while there's that glimmer
Just a smile, a slight squint of the eye
A memory worthy to remember
As I trace the lines of your forehead...

I wonder how long I've loved you for
A thousand years, or just today
I wonder how long I've been searching for
A thousand years, or just today
How many continents I've had to walk
Seas too deep to swim
I've wondered how long, wondered how long
Or if we've always been

Another great write here. Reminds me of my poems " The Unfolding Of The Two" and "The Other" in which time and love intertwine. Great minds think alike. . .

Synopsis
I wrote this for my friend Joe after he told me a story about a story teller woman he met who referred to him as an "old soul." According to the story teller his soul has been in existence for 7 generations. Our theory is we've known each other longer than in this lifetime because we know more about each other than would ever be possible otherwise. Very interesting I thought :).
