I thought I was complete
I’d dotted my i’s and crossed my t’s
But before you, I was a run on sentence
An incomplete phrase, an unfinished book
A knight without a princess in a tower
A hero without anyone to save.
A frog that had never been kissed.
Before love came into my life
I was an empty glass waiting to be filled.
Perfectly complete, but somehow empty.
You are my silence when the world is yelling
My hope when all seems lost
My support when the ground is shifting
My warmth on a cold night
Until you I’d never known longing
True joy was just beyond my reach
It was as if I’d spent my life in a coma
And now suddenly I am awake… and I don’t ever want to go back to sleep.
