My heart chose you


In the endless sea of possibility,

my heart chose you.

Even though so many things didn’t add up,

the circumstance was wrong,

the timing was so off,

but my heart still chose you.

It wasn’t love at first sight.

My heart has hurt before

and healed.

It is cautious and careful.

I went in with eyes wide open

and heart sewn shut.

The stitches began to fray,

and as much as I tried to turn from the truth,

my heart chose you.

 And if it happens anew,

if we live again in a different lifetime,

no matter when or where,

my heart will find you

and choose you all over again.
