I felt I had met you before
But introduced myself just to be sure.
You shook my hand and said hello
And I think even then I wanted to know
What about you drew me so
Why I felt comfortable to sit and talk
You asked great questions seemed quite sincere
I felt each of us wondering where to go from here.
The words we spoke had an impact
That neither of us chose to ignore
So I called you up
You said I’m oh so glad that you called
We agreed to meet
To explore the next phase.
We talked we laughed we loved we grew
Perhaps much more that either of us knew
We discovered great passion but also great rage
You say I ask questions I say you evade
You want to date I want to relate
We’re each looking for safety but in different ways
I say if I feel I can trust you then I’ll tell you my truth
You say tell me your truth and I’ll see if I can trust you
We let fear intrude and we lost our way
Now neither of us knows quite what to say
Do we say you were good for me but now I must go?
Or do we say if I let go of the fear there’s so much more I can know?
It’s a difficult question we each know that
And we also know that’s where the answer is at
