Did You Know?
Do you remember the Christmas when we were fourteen?
You called me to come outside.
The clouds sprinkled snow onto our faces while we looked up at the sky.
I remember the way the snowflakes
draped themselves in your hair
and the way you looked at me when I
brushed them from your head.
I remember the cadence of your voice and every word you said
We laughed together as icy coconut
shavings kissed our eyelashes and melted
against our skin.
Did you know I loved you then?
