When We Became Us
by Sheene' Jamila Sims
It happened all so suddenly, when we became Us.
One day we were just friends, the next we were lovers.
When we became Us, I didn't know what to expect.
Would we last or be a dream of the past?
When we became Us, I realized I had never felt that way before.
My heart had never found something new.
When we became Us, we took a chance, wishing our love would last.
Knowing that we had been hurt in the past.
Now that we have become Us, there is nothing I wouldn't do for you.
You are my heart, you are my soul, you are my all and all.
You are me and I am you. Loving you forever, leaving you never.
A toast to love and laughter and, 'happily ever after.'
NOW WE HAVE BECOME, 'US.'
