When I saw you, my first thought was


You were a path I couldn't afford to take,

A trail not marked on my life's careful map


You are the thoughts I shouldn't be thinking

You are the voice that sings though my mind

Your face brings a warmth I shouldn't be feeling

You are the hope I can't leave behind


So many ways to forget you


Undone by the simple recognition of your voice,

Faithful remembrance of what you've said


You are the questions I've no right to wonder

You are the dream I won't make come true

Your casual words, without fail, bring me under

You send me reeling by just being you.
