Amazingly Similar



Our love moves in stages,

Before I allowed you all in,

A heart yearned through ages,

As our story begin,


Away and long distance,

Always searching for more,

A lonely existence,

Until I knocked on your door,


All my nervous intention,

Coming into the light,

From subconscious invention,

To a lover’s delight,


Can’t believe you remember,

Gave our love second chance,

Stoke loves fire, every ember,

Is a path to romance.
