A Saturday Poem

[ from afar I fell for you ]

from afar I fell for you
at a distance counted every freckle
the small scar above your pink lip
things that would fool a microscope
I followed from a telescope distance
that cute mole stuck on your shoulder
the sweet crease inside your elbow
the ever slight cowlick above your brow
and that auburn hint in your flowing hair
sights missed by the common uninitiated
I see as lighted billboards flashing constant
decades passed all traces erased
but still your beauty remains
and I fall for you again each day
