Someone Like You

I've known love, it's true,
yet, never someone I could hold
so close to me, to adore, to share
my life with - yet, I've known love.

I've known love, it's true,
yet, never someone so true, so pure,
so sure, so completely in tune
with me - yet, I've known love.

I've known love, it's true,
yet, never someone just like you,
such lovers only come in dreams
and satisfy me oh so fleetingly.

I've known love, it's true,
yet, never someone who saw through
this silly mask I often wear to hide those
tears that I withhold deep within me.

I've known love, it's true,
yet, never someone who warmed my heart
as you did, as you always can, always will
without so much as a kind word or two.

I've known love, it's true,
yet, never someone who inspired
me to embrace life's many blessings
in such ways that you so easily do.
