I wish I knew you then

When the world quaked beneath my feet

Each step shakier than the last

I wish I knew you then

When each breath tasted foreign on my tongue

When each word left my lips with no sound

I wish I knew you then

When my heartbeat stuttered

And my will collapsed

I wish I knew then

All that you could be

All that you would mean

My love

My light

My soul
