Point of Origin

I can not tell you where or when
this fire of ours started;
or how you warmed this soul of mine,
so cold and broken hearted.

I can not say what caused the spark
that soon became a flame.
The time or place that it began,
I can not really name.

Was it when I first heard your voice
fall softly on my ear?
Or, when looking in your eyes I saw
our love reflected there?

Could it have been when we first kissed
on that November day?
Or, the first time you held my hand?
I can not really say.

Amazing how a spark can grow
so quickly to a fire;
and friendship grow into a love;
and love into desire.

No, it matters not where it began,
but only that it ends
in a fire of love that started with
a spark that we call friends.

Hoot, I love this one. Beautiful, and it expresses my sentiment exactly!
