Knowing & Loving You

I have known you
and loved you
All of your life,
For in knowing
And loving you today
I find that my love
Has transcended time
And knowledge.
I have loved you
Even as the seed
In your mothers' womb,
For in that seed you began.
All you are today
Began with that seed
and thus I have loved you
All of your life.
I have loved you
And known you
all of your life,
But you are
More precious
And more desirable now,
Because the years have
Seen you grow
In strength and
Humility, bending
With the wind
But not breaking.
I know you, yet
There is so much
more to know
I love you, yet
There is so much
more to love.
to Patrick
with all my love,
Carolynn (April 2001)
