What is this mystery that consumes me?
I hardly know my own thoughts –
Everything I thought I knew
I never knew at all;
Blindsided by this other entity
Who lives and breathes my very life,
I am no longer one person –
I am no one without this other;
Once I thought I owned the world –
I was the author of my existence,
Now I want to own nothing
But that space within your soul;
I cannot breathe without your breath,
I cannot think without your thoughts,
No longer do I occupy my own space
Because you’re ever in it!
I am filled with the magic of you,
I am humbled by the depth of your love –
A shooting star fallen to earth
And into my heart.
