I met you at a crossroads;
I didn’t know left from right;
I saw the signs but I was afraid –
Afraid to come off the dust beaten track.
You showed me a valley
Of infinite possibilities,
Without even meeting face to face.
Like the moon orbits the earth,
I felt your gravitational pull;
Even when we were no longer speaking
Your pull brought me closer to myself
Than I’d ever felt before.
Like staring into a mirror
And seeing a foreign face,
I saw what you saw all along,
And I knew that I had to swallow the fear
And leave behind what was already lost,
And found what I’d always been looking for.
