Because I’ve Known You

Because I’ve Known You

I’ll never be the same
I’ve been forever changed
Because I’ve known you.
 
I will never see the Ocean
The way I used to.
Because I’ve known you.
I will never see the Sun rise above the waves
Or see the light glisten in the distance
Without thinking of you.
 
I’ll never hear the birds
Quite the same way again
I will never wake up in the morning and hear their sweet song
Without remembering your presence
And how it felt to be there
Near you.
 
I’ll never write a poem
And feel the same way again
For words will be filled with memories of you
And of my hopes for just a moment more
I will never write a feeling in my life again
Without hoping you feel it too.
 
Because I’ve known you
My life is forever changed,
My dreams are forever altered,
My hopes are forever different.
I will never again be the same
Because I’ve known you.
 
I can’t imagine moments
Without you on my mind
I see you smile each and every time
I close my eyes.
I hear your voice everywhere
Reminding me I’ve been forever changed.
 
I used to think of mountains in all their majesty,
And now I see the Mountain that is me
The moment we embraced,
I knew that I never wanted to let go
And that I’d die in that embrace a 100 years later
If you’d have me.
 
I’ve been forever changed
Because I’ve known you.
I will never be the same.
