I watch you watching me
I wonder what do you see
To look at me that intensely
As if peering at my soul inside me

I look at you with fondness
Just seeing you fills me with happiness
Without you in my sight, I feel sadness
There is no me, just emptiness

You saw me looking at you
I smiled and you smiled too
I asked myself back then, ‘Is this really true?’
That time when you said, ‘Hi. Nice to meet you.’

You showed me how good it can be
By staying and loving me unconditionally
The doubts and fears I held inside me
Melted down as you held me steady

I opened my eyes as I began to realize
What is now and where I was
It has been just a dream from a distant past
A deceiving fantasy, that’s what it was.
