Before

Before you were born
I loved you
before memory had its name
my love flowed like rivers
unending, seamless as infinity
I loved you
before clocks knew how to count
and dust could touch ground
before galaxies formed to constellation
my love poured
incessantly

I loved you
before atoms could fold into molecules
and air blew wind
before light inflamed moon
and time stretched to eternity
my love for you
starred the night
cannot be measured
by weights or degrees
is boundless
unfathomable
incandescent
