It was you that I met, at the very time when everything seemed to have been lost.
It was you that I met, at that moment when I thought I had to hate myself the most.
It was you that I met, when I thought I had prematurely reached my life’s very end.
It was you that I met, when this life had creased me beyond the kind of child that anyone could pitifully pledge to defend
It was you that I met, and somehow everything about me eventually changed.
It was you that I met, and all my life automatically was rearranged.
It was you that I met, and all my fears were ultimately estranged.
It was you that I met, and all the miseries of my heart, for love at first sight were exchanged.
I had always been around with you, but for some reason, the two of us had never really met!
Right now, it makes sense that I was wrong to believe that what you actually see is exactly what you get.
Because at the very time when all I saw around me was a ruthless outrage of pain and hate,
That’s when you showed up, and my hope to love again was automatically re-set;
Now I’m stronger, am wiser, am nursing colorful butterflies; all just because it was you that I met.
