About the Poem

I'm ashamed to admit I don't remember who originally inspired this poem. That's sad because, for all its simplicity, it's one that means a lot to me. Each woman I've loved, at the time I loved her, seemed to epitomize what God intended when he gave Mankind the gift of Love. And so, each woman I've loved, at the time I loved her, could have been my inspiration.

I'd like to believe that's the case. Then, I wouldn't feel quite so bad admitting I've given this same poem to more than one person.

In The Beginning

God said let there be light,
And there was light.

God said let there be life,
And the birds took flight.
