Day one, I saw you
no one there beside you
walking alone inside the dark
Timid as I was
I spoke to you because
I knew the path you walked as well as you did.
Though it seemed a simple thing
it meant a lot for just a 'thing'
and the dark seemed to lighten one shade.
The next few months I saw you
more often than I used to
and it lit a candle in my heart.
From friend to best friend
so quickly it happened
I knew more was in store for us.
Then one day
the darkness faded away
thanks to those words you said.
'I love you.' you said to me
and how joyous I was to be
the one person you loved dearly.
I then said, 'I love you as well.'
and away went the flames of Hell
and your darkness faded off, too.
Now here we are,
so close yet so far,
oh, if only I could see you every day.
The beauty of your smile,
I wish I could see for a long while
and be forever in your company.
