He was not where he belonged,
But he couldn’t follow his heart,
His dreams would not come true,
They always fell apart.
He knew he should leave,
As the love had fled long ago,
But he’d lived so long in the dark,
Fearing the light he didn’t know.
He believed in angels and yet,
When she appeared out of thin air,
The timing inspired some debate,
Recognizing not (the answer to) his prayer.
He found peace unparalleled,
Each moment close to her,
Felt solid, familiar and intimate,
All he desired is to surrender.
He knew where he belonged at last,
In his heart he felt no strife,
But he was caught in between,
The devil and the rest of his life.
