Where did it begin?


Was it in the stars?

Amidst the nothingness of the universe


Or was it in the seas?

With the gentle treading of the waves


Or was it at the touch of two hands?

When two worlds merged into one


Or was it when the eyes met?

When everything made sense without words


Or was it in the distance?

That the logical mind could not bear to cover


I don't know where it began


All I know is that it began

With a scintillating force

Lighting a fire

That is not meant to be extinguished


Because it has begun.
