Never were we "forever together",
We met when we were barely
Wearing training bras and first blooming
Into the imbeciles we are today.
It was never a meeting of Fate,
We weren't in diapers,
It wasn't the first day of kindergarten,
It wasn't even all that dramatic.
Simply put, we weren't all that close.
No heart-pounding or life-changing event,
It was a normal Winter day,
I was new, naive and nervous.
Not even, were you the first to talk to me,
Probably the fiftieth? Sixty? Twenty?
Ours was a slow thing,
The pace of a snail really.
Without realizing a thing
Your hand found mine
You hold it, warm and kind
Soft and gentle.
A love like ours, simple yet deep
Wouldn't make it to the big screen,
Just make sure,
You never let go.
A simple and uneventful as it was
I'm glad for it, because
After years of never having
I have a generous and loving hand.
Make sure, you never let go
Even if it was simple
I wouldn't imagine
Ever living without you now.
