I have never expected to fall in love,
with you least of all.
There was a time where I barely knew you,
a time long ago where I hardly remembered your name,
but now I wonder,
how was that ever so?
I was once blind to you,
caught up in the allure of others.
I was young and foolish then, when my eyes were closed,
back before I saw you.
I have learned so much since then,
I have seen the truth of your being. It’s frustrating,
thinking about how much time I wasted,
remembering all the times I forgot you,
now wishing that you knew the guilt I feel.
I won’t lie to you, I never will.
You are flawed. You are
stubborn, confrontational, almost too outspoken,
and brutally honest in a way I can’t quite comprehend.
But you are kind,
and you are loyal and brave,
you are loving and strong.
I was truly was a fool,
back before I loved you.
