Believing what you said to me, I vowed to be secure

In what I felt, the disparity, I was not very sure


You broke my heart and let it go, I did not want to be

A notion or a simple prize to show, I wanted to be free


Freedom with you is what I dared, and my heart devoured every word

Of the renewed vow that you soulfully bared, your wanted to be heard


I came across your sweater one day, the one you left behind

Its texture soothed my weary way, I kept it safe and sound


You brought back words and certainty, you said you would be true

I ascertained a clarity that let me come back to you


So now I take it all in stride,what we have just begun

I laugh with giddiness inside, for the that we have won
