Now And Then - Poem by Jan Hauck

Before I knew you, how did I exist?
Embraced my darkness, tell me what to do,
When quietly you told me I'd be missed.

Temptation is for some a bleeding wrist,
When life was only merely getting through,
Before I knew you, how did I exist?

My memory became forgotten mist,
The first light of the morning came from you,
When quietly you told me I'd be missed.

But much of me is trying to resist,
Refuse to see how bright the sky and blue,
Before I knew you, how did I exist?

What difference would it make if I was kissed,
Your smile, my heart connected right on cue,
When quietly you told me I'd be missed.

You met me when my life was black and trist,
Although I'm old, you make me young and new,
Before I knew you, how did I exist,
When quietly you told me I'd be missed.
