POEM TO MAGEE - English version

Written by: Michael Poyntz

there was
a moment
an incredible second
when i dared to cross
the invisible line
built with such great care
between us
to protect
our gentle
silent secrets

how could i know 
there would only be 
one of you

and yet
in a single heartbeat
devoid of reason
or restraint
i crossed into your world
discovering you
my true first love
within my grasp
and within
my life

how would i know 
there could only be 
one of you
