Do you remember when we met?
I scribbled my feelings on paper.
You came to me like a knight
To rescue me from a dark room.
You became my sunshine
And I a sunflower longing for you.
Do you remember when we became friends?
As I wrote down tears I couldn’t cry.
I was a rough diamond full of dirt
And you an eager diamond cutter
Shaped me until I reflected beauty.
Do you remember when we fell in love?
As I inscribed my nightmares at 3am.
The ink in my pen became waves,
Waves that crashed against my heart
And suddenly I was 4 years old again,
You presented me with a gift of peace.
