More Than A First Kiss

More than a first kiss in utter darkness,
certain things miss the eye, like the wind
that bends a tree from where it should be,
or a smell that uncovers a buried memory,
or a song that fills the body with strange
poignancy, so there must be in Love taken
amiss, that weakens all but the heart's eye
that serves our will to go on and never die.
