5 years ago, I would sit and gaze up into grey skies,
Gasping for breath and taking in shallow water,
Wondering why the sharks around me only
Had interests lying skin deep. Oh I was in deep,
Wishing I could meet someone like you,
Not knowing that you were drowning in a different ocean,
The same sharks would stare as you sent bottles out to sea,
With hopes of friendships, life and prosperity.
Then the currents changed,
And our courses rearranged, I no longer had to look up to see blue skies,
For now I just look across and into your eyes.
Meanwhile, the sharks may follow, but they’ll never swallow us whole
As long as we are together, linked at the soul.
However, just like the weather, things change again,
I’m sat here with a pen in my hand and fears in my heart,
But none of them come from us being apart
Because I know that wherever you and I go,
I’ll still love you,
The girl I dreamt of 5 years ago.
