At First Site
By James Stoudamire
The day started like any other day;
There was no warning,
Not even a clue.
Little things at the time now are ever so vivid.
I sit silently now as I review in awe and pleasure everything
There I was laughing without a care in the world.
There I was sitting waiting on a dear friend when all of a
At First Site... I thought I was dreaming.
At First Site... I heard in the distance my friends say, "close
At First Site... I could see into the future of this beautiful
creation the bond that would last throughout eternity.
At First Site... I began to think about what type of husband and
At First Site... I found myself awestruck like in "Paradise
Lost" when Satan beholds Eve for the first time and realizes how ugly he really is and thinks she must be a new god because of her awesome totally consuming beauty.
Finally, out of this beautiful divine looking woman came a voice
which still floods and haunts my ears' memory.
The beauty of her voice,
The tilt of her head,
The nape of her neck,
Those huntingly gentle but powerful eyes
that yet were totally defenseless as well as alluringly enchanting.
She spoke my name.
Did her lips actually move?
Is it possible that I could actually hear her without her
She spoke my name again
I had never heard my name like this.
I have never heard anyone else say it quite the same even
My heart had melted and become one with hers before I even
At First Site... I didn't know I already belonged to her
At First Site... She didn't know she belonged to me
At First Site... We both acknowledged in our secret heart that
we would always be together.
Even now when I wake 55 years later quite early in the
morning next to her it's like the first day I saw her...
At First Site.
