I opened the door.
I let you in.
At first it was just barely ajar, when I saw your smile.
You showed your true self to me, over and over.
I couldn’t believe it.
I wanted to open the door wider.
I wanted to have you close.
But then I closed it back a bit
Too soon for us both.
But you kept gently knocking.
In rhythm with my heart.
So I opened it all the way.
And here we are.
