1,008 days have passed yet it feels like yesterday
when you first made me smile. Admittedly,
I didn't expect much else. Maybe some small talk,
a passing hi here and there — I never expected
you to take over my heart.
Unforeseen yet slowly something I began
to hope for — because I knew you were the reason
my heart was no longer left in pieces, chopped,
stirred and stomped on.
Instead, it was healing, coming together
and I knew you were the one responsible.
I knew I was falling in love with you. And I hoped
infinitely that you felt, just maybe,
felt the same way.
And now here we are 1,008 days later.
I gained the answer I was seeking, I gained
my hopes and dreams. I gained you.
It will never cease to astonish me how love can heal emotional wounds. 1008 days of 'getting to know one another', slowly building a trusting relationship; until one day the friendship becomes one of intense feeling. A heart once 'stomped and stirred' is whole and open for love.
