I wish I met you sooner, So time wouldn’t feel so short, Because now I’m counting down the clock, To the part where we depart. Where I move twelve hours away, And our strange adventures come to an end. Where everything I hoped would happen Now has an expiration.
I wish I met you sooner, But I am happy that we meet at all. Because I feel like your part of what changed me, That now has me skipping brave and tall. You remind me of what I was And what I want to be again, You help me look at the world As a new adventure that’s waiting to begin.
I wish I met you sooner, But that’s just not how it happened, And I am not sure that it would have been the same If it had been any other way. Because I wasn’t ready tell let others in And I would have been to shy, But you have me smiling, **** near every time you say “Hi”.
I wish I met you sooner, So our adventures could just go on, And I fear that when I move away, This will all be gone, But I’ll hold my breath in expectations And hope for the best. Because even though I wish I met you sooner, I am happy we at least got this. -ALC April 23, 2017
