I wish I could say I searched,
searched for someone like you.
I wish I could lie,
lie about how I always had someone like you
in mind.
How was I to know…
such a human being exists in a world full of cruelty.
Do you even have to be in our world?
It’s like you don’t belong.
It has been long
since I met a soul so precious,
since I saw light.
In my world, it has always been night
with no stars or moon
To brighten up the darkness.
Love, peace and kindness –
all I’ve ever wished for,
not knowing if they even existed.
I kept on praying for days like this.
They were closer than I thought.
How was I to know?
