The first time
I looked into your eyes
I saw the fullness of my life
beginning to end
and every love I ever loved
or would
was a single word
set down in a poem
I would write to illuminate my devotion

I have loved you forever
and you knew.

qor [ kohr ], (noun) – breath, “life’s breath”

We resume. With poetry. What else?
