You changed my life for the better (poem)

04 Jun

That special meeting

You changed my life for the better

The changes came so very slowly at the start,
Just a tiny crack appearing within my heart.
Before that moment, just a stillness lived within,
Then you appeared and caused those changes to begin.

I had shut the world out, turning myself away,
Even when I met you, my life was still so grey.
Yet, when you pass me by, you left something behind,
Just a little seed that my heart was sure to find.

Without my awareness, that seed started to grow,
Until the crack made in my heart started to show.
The changes had begun! there was no holding back,
And I began to see just what my life did lack.

Now it’s time to open up, for my life to change,
Time to take a look and see what to rearrange.
Remove the grey sadness, let love come shining through,
Fill my life with happiness, all because of you.
