she looked my way

just like the others

it was the first time that we met.

I caught her eye

but for a moment

it was life lived in a blur

I can’t say how her look revealed me I can’t process all that was said

but from the short time that I knew her

I was forever in her debt.

She was complex and yet so simple 

she taught me things I’d never heard.

she showed me love was more than romance

because her love was undeserved

and she grew up though no one else would

and her applause were silent praise

from a young child to a woman

who crossed his path because he’d prayed.

you want so much someone to save you and so you call at passers by

but if your still you’ll hear the echo

your not the only one who cries

I never thought that I could give her

half what she could give to me 

but I followed suit

and gave her all

and she returned it all to me.

she looked my way like no other

though only briefly we had not.

she caught my eye

but for a moment

there was life inside that blur

she has a look that is revealing

there are no words for its effect.

but for the short time that I knew her

I am forever in her debt.
