Gracefully you came into my life
Inched your way towards my unsuspecting heart
Like a lock to a key, or ketchup to mustard
Being with you completes me, no doubt.
Every millisecond's a bliss - that only a true love brings
Radiant. Enthused. Gay. Bemused. Supportive. Serene.
These indescribeable feelings fill my being.
Patiently, we planned out a life of togetherness
And to the red flags I saw, I kept my eyes wide shut
Couldn't quite bear it when, after 3 years,
You came out clean, out of love and respect you claimed
Nameless pain it brought me. My worst fears confirmed.
And so, I fled.
Still, to this day, 20+ years after
You're still the one I love - the only one who lives in my heart.
