This poem celebrates love in a new family, defining love by little things that we may take for granted

I knew I loved you

I knew I loved you when I woke up and saw you there
Fast asleep right next to me
Your face so solemn so meek
I gazed at you and called you husband
I touched your lips and you sighed
I held your hands and you grasped mine tightly
Like a child with a firm and innocent grip
And then I knew I loved you
When I snuggled up right next to you
And you reached out and held me in tight embrace
The warmth of your breath behind my ears
The flicker of your eyebrows on my skin even as you awoke
Your hand reaching out to touch our unborn
In sweet caress to say you cared
I loved you even more
As we opened our bible and read the psalms
The lessons we learnt
The prayers we said
You looked into my eyes and I felt the touch of an angel
And that moment was the closest to heaven I had ever been
A perfect world, just you and I
And then I knew I loved you
When I cooked your meal and you did the dishes
When I cleared the table and you swept the floor
When I drank water and you topped up my glass
When I lay in bed and you made me hot coco
When we took a bath and you scrubbed my back
When you told me how beautiful I was even in my ugliest moments
When we took a walk and reminisced on how it all happened
How close can anyone get to such bliss?
And then I knew you loved me too

I knew I loved you before I met you,
I felt your rhythm in my heart.
I felt your name come out amongst the few,
I knew this love would never part.
We are together in love forever,
In a world we are safe to belong.
In a land forever in shower,
Remaining faithful is our song.

We are the ones who stood through time,
We are the one who showed the way.
We are the lovers in Eternity sublime,
This is the prayer we silently say.

It is the melody we sing of our love,
This is the promise we do share.
You are the answer gift from Above,
Our love echoing everywhere.

This is the Vision,
From the heart so true.
The Gift of Creation,
Growing in you.
Element of Trust,
Loves' Respite.
Signifying I love you true.
