I remember a time 
Before I first met you, 
A time of heartache and scorn. 
My heart, ripped apart, 
And all my dreams torn asunder. 
All emotion I felt: misery. 
How was one to know 
About a counterfeit love? 
Certainly I never could. 
But I then met an angel
Whom love had also torn. 
All parts of emotion 
Left like a rose, only thorns. 
Fate then intervened, 
Bringing together two sorrowful souls.
Together they found 
A newly shaped love
Buried under layer after layer 
Of harsh pain. 
A part of me said "yes" 
But the hurt, it said "no" 
She told me to trust 
But heart, hesitant, 
Reminded me of the past 
When love embraced my door. 
But, I look in her eyes
And see it?s true: 
She does love me 
And I love her, too. 
She taught me to trust again. 
She showed me the light 
And there isn?t any way 
I could ever repay her
For the wonderful things she has done.
