When I heard you the first time

I shifted my gaze

to look for you in that crowded room

your deep-throated voice

stirred something inside my soul

and started something I didn’t know


When I heard you the first time

I felt as if you have called out to my sleeping soul

and shook me from my deep slumber

it chased away all the demons inside me

and rendered my soul pure


When I heard you the  first time

my emotions fluttered like fireflies in a jar

ready to take flight 

and soar in the endless sky

without the fear of getting caught 


When I heard you the first time

my wounds began to heal

it felt so unreal

as if the time has erased

the pain I felt for so long


When I heard you the first time

your heart synced up with mine

and we  resonated to the same tune

we both felt what was divine

it opened the floodgates inside me

nothing seemed to stop

what was flowing inside me


When I heard you the first time

Your soul spoke to mine

you showed me the path

that was clearly mine


I should have been

in a different universe now

if I hadn’t heard

your voice that day, somehow.
