Member Monday: It Wasn’t Love at First Sight by Alicia McCauley

Welcome back to Member Monday!  In light of the approaching holiday, here’s a little love poem by Alicia McCauley.

It Wasn’t Love at First Sight

by Alicia McCauley

It wasn’t love at first sight.

It was the kind of love that slowly sheds its coat,

sends tenuous roots to explore.

It was love that grew over time

and in the warmth of him

I unfurled my leaves

and grew into the woman

I was meant to be.

It wasn’t love at first sight.

It was better.

It was love that gave me vision.

It was love from a boy

who grew into a man.

A man who saw me for who I was.

And loved me anyway.
