When We Are Together - Poem by Caitlin Walls
When we are together the fairies are free
The birds can fly
And I never cry
But when we’re apart the fairies cry
The birds hide
My heart wilts and starts to fade
Running away was supposed to do me good
All it did was put the past under a hood
I came back and the feelings did too
The moment I saw you my world came crashing down
Seeing the terror and hatred in your eyes stopped me in my tracks
But I turned away and held my head high
Secretly praying that you would again come walking by
I longed to hear your voice; I had begun to forget what you sounded like
That night my wish came true; I heard your voice and I never stopped smiling
But I couldn’t be yours because I was someone else’s
I was happy
As the memory of your voice began to disappear the pain and tears did too
And I thought I might have gotten over you.
But I heard the pain in your voice, the longing to embrace me once again
I didn’t know if I should take that risk
But my heart took hold and I in turn broke someone’s heart to be with you again
Now look where we are, still together and we will be forever
Stronger than ever and walking hand in hand with our heads held high ready for what destiny has for us.
I knew you were the one the minute you knocked on my door seven years ago
And never again will I let go.
