You came into my life
so clear,
so bright

while others passed by,
you chose to stay
waited out the ride

slowly peering
inch by inch
slowly creeping out
exposing more and more

I am greeted by welcoming eyes
and a generous smile

Even though I've only allowed just a peek out,
I don't lose hope
I can't lose hope

not yet

It's such a foreign feeling
having someone there

patiently waiting,
for me
to open my heart

I just hope
...I just hope
I was worth the wait
