Before And After

There are words that always come
before and after all the other words
Before a poem starts
and after it has finished

They already occupy the page
long before the first letter is written
And they continue even after
the last point

They are the source
of all that I create
as a constant truth
they’re carved in my heart,
their echo sounds in yours
These words are: I love you
