The First Time I Knew You

You were warm.

I was cold. 


And you were warm.

Warm like a fleece blanket

Softening my insides in cozy embrace.


You were sweet

Like you knew me before you ever had to ask

Why I was me.


You felt me

Like the only thing I ever needed was to be touched

The way you touched me.



I could have lay down there forever

Wrapped up in your heart beat

That seemed to make a dance for me.


You were already waiting for me.
