The First Time We Touched

All these words are just a front. What I would really like to do is chain you to my body, then sing for days and days and days. — Hafiz

How could I have told you
the first time we touched,
that you,
had preceded you.
Your smile
seen through wavy hair
your eyes
through tender heart
had reached me
before we ever met.
Your questions brought us closer.
My feebleness,
dampened heart.
Then in the sign
of three times seven
you physically reappeared.

How could I have told you,
the first time we touched,
that our souls,
had already kissed?
