in the light of the rising sun

I saw you today for the first time
and I realised all these years
Iíve been wrong

In your gaze I found something
I hadnít seen before
nameless and choked
and honest

I want to be the woman you see
because in your eyes I am beautiful
and something more
than Iíve ever dared to dream

I canít explain
the storm in my ribcage
or the tear-stained smile on my face
or the way our silence wraps me in its warm embrace

I canít say the words
I fear youíre wanting to hear

But I can say
I was wrong all these years
and Iím sorry it took so long
to see the sunrise
hidden in your eyes
