It’s been so long,
So long since I let someone in,
Holding myself tight,
Staying at arm’s length.

Then you flew in,
All air, and strength, and light,
Fierce to evil,
And loving to all that’s good.

Knock me down,
Take my very breath away,
Turn my head,
Melting my stone heart.

What have I done,
To deserve such kindness,
To be loved,
To be cared for like this?

Yet, you said it,
You planted a seed,
Growing in me,
Becoming a beautiful thing.

May I repay you,
By giving you all my life,
Sharing with you,
The time we have together.
