soul mates

It took me years to find you,
And you have finally come.
It took me years to trust you
And now the pact is done.


It took me years to love you.
In fact, I stop to think if we
Would be better off as two
Than the "one" our peers perceive.


It took me years to need you.
I always managed by myself.
Now the days are bleak and dry
With anybody else.


It took me years to kiss you,
And even then, it was small and sweet.
But that's how we both like it,
Gentle and petite.


It took me years to trust you,
And you never broke the pact.
I give in all my love to you
And you give me all you have.


It took me years to love you,
But now I always will.
It took me years to love you,
But now I always will.
