When I met you I thought it was just a chance meeting
I couldn’t have guessed all the secrets we’d share.
I never thought you would make me question
so much of what I believed in.
I was still unsure of myself, of what I wanted.
I couldn’t have predicted time would pass so quickly with you,
I didn’t think we’d laugh and smile so much together,
I thought our friendship was temporary.
When I met you I didn’t realize all the possibilities in the world,
I didn’t know I’d forget our memories,
because we lived too much in the present,
to realize how fast time was passing by us.
When I met you I couldn’t have guessed you would always
be on my mind,
Guiding me through my obstacles.
I didn’t know you were someone special.
I didn’t know what role you’d have in my life.
I wondered if you were my miracle?
When I met you I never knew of how much of an impact
one person could have on a life.
I didn’t know you’d be the one thing
that would motivate me to do things I never thought about doing.
I didn’t know I wouldn’t have gotten here
I didn’t know you’d make me a better person
than I thought I could be.
When I met you I didn’t know I still had so much to learn.
I didn’t want to believe
that there’s no such thing as perfection.
I didn’t believe you’d be there for when I was at my worst,
I didn’t believe you’d listen,
I was still so foolish,
Never realizing the progress we’d made,
Until I thought about who I was before you.
When I met you I thought I had a lot figured out.
I didn’t know you’d be the one
to make me smile on my worst day
I didn’t think someone like you could care as much as you did.
I didn’t understand how I got to the point where
I couldn’t live without you.
I didn’t know how perfect the timing we met was.
When I met you I never got the chance to realize how appearances don’t quite equal characters.
I had never second guessed my assumptions about people
before I even spoke a word to them.
I never thought someone like you could care.
I wish I could have treated you better than I did.
When I met you my assumptions blocked opportunities.
I didn’t know
we’d have something special,
Something that others wouldn’t understand,
That I don’t understand.
When I met you I couldn’t have guessed
that you’d get me to where I am today.
I didn’t think you’d treat me as well as you did.
I didn’t think you’d give me a chance.
When I met you I didn’t know that what we perceive on the outside
isn’t always the same
as what we learn
when we spend the time to peel back the layers of a person.
When I met you I couldn’t have guessed that now,
you’re someone I look forward to seeing every day.
I couldn’t have guessed how much I’d appreciate your words
When I met you I couldn’t have predicted how much I could learn from you.
When I met you I thought you were so stereotypical,
I assumed so much about you,
Yet you didn’t fit into these boxes I had made.
I could probably say now
that you are what shattered most of my assumptions of people.
When I met you I didn’t know that after every disagreement we’d have,
you’d still be there.
I didn’t know you’d help me even when I didn’t deserve it,
for how I treated you.
I couldn’t have guessed you’d be the person to put a smile on my face each and every day.
