You appeared in my life rather suddenly
ready to swoop me up like a tornado.
Soon a potent force whirled deep within
I was not prepared to bestow.
But you have gently chipped away at that wall,
which took many years to build.
Through your patience, warmth, and kindness,
qualities which helped my heart yield.
At times I feel this is only a dream
and I will wake in any second.
But when I gaze into your eyes, I know this is real
and that you are the one my soul has beckoned.
