The Change Inside of Me

We met again full of sorrow
Many years after many chances
We walked the banks of the same river
We didn’t know which side or which way
We found out when we met that day

I was full of dread for tomorrow
You knew how to live in the moment
I told you everything the past had done
You listened then moved a little closer
I knew my days of being alone were over

Now my darkness can see
The sun and moon are the same
The world has not changed
Only the feelings inside of me

It’s something that’s hard to explain
Believing in the love of another
I know who I am
I’ll take that chance

So many nights I can only touch your mind
Filling it with words only actions can prove
When you decided your heart watched
Are the ways of love in my footsteps
Your heart knows what comes next

Now my darkness can see
The sun and moon are the same
The world has not changed
Only the feelings inside of me

I like this poem as well. I enjoy short poems that I can reflect on.
