Amazing how so suddenly someone who once was a stranger can now mean the world to you

I did not foresee it,

How much this once stranger,

Would one day mean to me.

I wonder, if I could have known,

Would I have believed it?

That such a precious soul,

Could be mine to hold?

As I gaze at you now,

I see a world of untold adventure awaiting.

Through your beautiful eyes,

I can see the unspoken question,

Will I follow after you?

Here in your arms,

I found the answer,

Awaiting on my tongue.

Yes…. yes, yes, and forever yes,

I know now I’d follow you anywhere.

And as I look into your eyes,

I wonder how I could have,

Ever wanted anything else.

Because the once stranger,

Suddenly became my whole world,

My adventure,

My future.

Melancholic Wisdom

A very relatable poem, it's also quite though provoking as well. It made me think about the people who I'm really close with, and how at one point we were all strangers until fate brought us together. Wonderfully written, great job.
