This is the first of a three-part series, but I wrote them in reverse order so this one I wrote last! The order goes “They Knew,” “Through Thick and Thin,” and “Effervescent Evanescence.” I hope you’ll take the time to read through all of them!

They Knew

He knew it by her voice

Before he knew it by her face,

Then he knew it by her laugh

And never wanted to stop hearing it.

 

He knew it by her hair

Before he knew it by her breath,

Warm and sweet in his left ear.

Then he knew it by her skin.

 

He knew it by her voice

And then he knew it by her choice.

He knew it by her tell

And then he knew it by the bell.

 

He knew her and she knew him;

They knew each other

And they knew they would never

Need anything else.
