A Letter To My Love

I know not who you are
and your introduction
I have never chanced
and your meeting
never placed
And yet I know you
As a brother and friend
comrade and lover;
I know your longings and desires
(As they are my very own)
I know you with all
your perfections and faults
(As I know my very self)
I know you not for
Who you are but what you are
And it is that bond
Among us as among all men
That I say "I love you"
And yearn with an aching
In my breasts
To say "I know you".
