There Was Something
There was something magical about how he smiled.
How he laughed and grinned.
There was something magical about how he held me,
As if he only wanted me in the end.
There was magic in his laugh.
There was magic in his smile.
I think of him each day.
He helps me through each mile.
There was something in his eyes that glistened with love.
Glistening brown and bright.
There was something in his eyes that said I was safe.
I believed I was alright.
His eyes said, “Hey,
I’m here if you need me.”
And I needed him then,
To be beside me.
There was something sad about how he acted,
As if we would break or fade.
There was something sad about how his smile never ended,
As if he was scared I would go away.
Neither of us had a choice
And neither of us knew
That it would all fade away
And our lives go on just as blue.
There was something hopeful about how he hugged me,
As if we would meet again.
There was something hopeful about how he asked
If I was alright then.
I was alright then,
But I do not know now.
My heart is blank,
My mind a cloud.
There was something strange when I woke up,
With a man’s image in my head.
There was something strange when I realized I dreamed
Once I was out of bed.
I believe someday I will meet him,
Maybe in days, months, or years.
But I believe when I meet him,
He will wipe away my tears.
There will be something sweet in his smile
When he realizes it is me.
There will be something sweet in his voice
When he promises never to leave.
I look forward to when I meet him.
I know it will not be today.
But when I do meet him,
I hope he feels the same way.
