I Loved You

Copy of Druids Matthew and Flavia

I loved you before you were conceived

I loved you before you were born

I loved you before your first step

I loved you before your first word

I loved you before your first day at school

I loved you before you told me not to kiss you goodbye

I loved you when I was your hero

I loved you when I wasn’t

I loved you when you judged me

I loved you when you left home

I loved you when you went to University

I loved you when you fell in love

I loved you when your heart broke

I loved you when were angry

I loved you when were glad

I loved you before you forgave me

I loved you

A Thousand Raindrops

Cat Window Rain

Today I lay on the floor

With my cat

Both of us

Looking out the window

At the rain

Not since I was ten years old

Has the beauty and the mystery

Of a thousand raindrops

Continuously falling

And forming

Tiny individual water worlds

On the ground

Enchanted me so

The window also is a water world

Of splashes and drippings

And I have not know such tranquility

Since I was a boy

I fall asleep to the rhythm of the rain

Soothed and calmed

And am awakened by my cat

Patiently nibbling on my elbow

“Play with me, play with me.”
