I was dealt a free hand in this game of life.
Any hand I played would cause little strife.
Alone I chose to be.
On a path of self-discovery.
I thought I had it all figured out, my life.
It was all mapped out.
But this I did not see, you interrupted me.
Barely experiencing what life’s about.
You enchanted me and placed me on this route.
Unaware I’d fall.
I took steps but they were small.
You caught me, held me tight.
Gave me a glimpse of what love should be.
Now I am thinking of you constantly.
Alone I am no more.
And together the world is an open door.
