I didn’t know you’d be there for me.
I didn’t know that you’d see the things every one else missed,
help me without thinking,
come to stand beside me when I needed to stay grounded.
I didn’t know how much you would help me.
I didn’t know how much I would help you.
I didn’t know I’d bring you back to yourself.
I didn’t know I was the only one you’d share your deepest thoughts with,
be the inspiration for the words coming from your heart,
be trusted with your past, present and future.
I didn’t know any of this.
But if I could tell my past self it would happen,
I’d stay quiet, and let her experience it all fresh,
hand in hand with you
on this adventure that’s still going.
