Used to Be

I used to be blind until I met you...
I used to be lost until I loved you...
I used to cry for hours thinking what will happen
I used to sit alone in the dark 
Right there on the corner
Like a wounded bird in a world of cats
I feared looking up
And see the eyes looking back
I used to be hopeless
I believed in the dark
And never saw the light
I watched people passing by laughing
... I never knew that feeling
I used to sit and stare and wonder
Look at the moon and see my reflection
We both sat alone in this dark world
And never met the sun that would light it up
I called for help but there was no answer
No one looked back and saw me stumble on the way…
Until an eye
Stared back at my lonely soul
Made me feel a slight burn in the heart
That eye I remember
Broke the cage of my heart
And bread the flame of love
You came to me when everyone left
Gave me a hand that everyone hid
You held me up high and into your arms I sat
I wondered was this real?
But I didn't care
All I cared is being in your arms... being with you
A dream or not I will always hold that moment tight
You have came and taught me a new feeling
A feeling that gave me strength to stand up again and fight for my reasons
A feeling that made me see the bright colors of the world
A feeling that killed the loneliness I have lived
You gave me… Love
