How Do I Know ?

“I love you”,
he said,
“and I know you love me
too.”
“How do you know,”
asked the brilliant
burst of morning sun,
“that I love you ?”

How do I know ?

How do I know I have eyes ?
I can see you
That I have a voice ?
I speak to you
That I have a nose ?
I smell your scent

How do I know I am a human ?
I seethe at injustice
I know the pain of loss and rejection
I know the joy of children

How do I know you love me ?
So many ways you’ve shown me
With your mind
Your eyes
Your arms
Your tongue
Your body

I know
I know
And I love you more than I can say
More than I can show
Always

This is how I know
