Until You


I've never given myself
completely to someone-
mind, body or soul.


I've never found anyone
deserving of my love.


Even when I said the words,
I didn't mean them.


They came from lips
desperate to be kissed
a little longer.


Not a heart that
found its mate.


Until you.

You changed everything.


I've always been self-conscious
but with you
I feel myself letting go.


My trust issues seem
like a thing of the past.


I have faith in your honesty,
your loyalty.


Even though it's easy for me
to second guess you,
you always prove yourself.


I never thought I would know love
that was true.


Until you.
