Just Because, I Met You
I never knew what lonely was till I met you.
I enjoyed silence and solitude more than anything else before I met you.
I would tire from talking all night,
From observing all of the time,
Till I met you.
I didn’t know what it meant to yearn for someone so strongly before I got to know
You are so familiar and still within every conversation I feel I am putting together a puzzle piece by piece,
Only there is no larger picture to amount to
Because you are still growing
Just like me…
I never knew how selfless I could be till I wanted to give you the world
And every bit of me.
But I never knew how selfish I could be
For the happiness and wholeness that you give me.
It is true that you have changed me
And I allowed you to,
Teach me about myself
All of which was already there inside
But I never trusted to let myself go
With anyone else before
I met you.
I never truly understood that I loved
Before I met you.
Till I wanted to learn every language you spoke
Wanted to understand every scar you bore
Wanted to burst wide open every time
I met you, bit by bit
And I learned to love
Each and every bit that I met…
