You Came, Too Poem by Nikki Giovanni

You Came, Too

Rating: 4.8


I came to the crowd seeking friends
I came to the crowd seeking love
I came to the crowd for understanding

I found you

I came to the crowd to weep
I came to the crowd to laugh

You dried my tears
You shared my happiness

I went from the crowd seeking you
I went from the crowd seeking me
I went from the crowd forever

You came, too

Joy is to find what you truly want in life. You found it.

When I first heard this poem I immediately fell in love with it. Although I have a real love for reading both novels and poems, the strange thing about it is I often do not remember the book`s title or who wrote it, it has to be a story unlike any other for me to never forget what it is about. This is true with this poem, I never forgot the title or what I perceive it to be about. Of Course, I shall never forget the author.
