You Were Already There

~You Were Already There~ So many years has gone by Still I searched for you everywhere A true love I believed that someday I would find Little did I know that you were already there You always knew what to say To soothe everything that I was going through You always decided to stay Whenever love left me broken in two Suddenly came the day when I had to let you go To support you emotionally on your wedding day Then it occurred to me that the one person I love so Is the one that is going to be taken away I just had to run over to you before it was too late I had to somehow tell you what I was feeling the whole time To convince you that marrying him would be your biggest mistake For our love had already blossomed while I was too blind So I ran up to you at the altar not having a care I looked at you with nothing but love in my eyes I told you that the love that I was searching for was already there That it was her, always at my side We got married that day, embracing our hearts so sincere Realizing that in order for love to blossom it must grow For while that was happening, you were already there Waiting so patiently for me to help us grow…

    Is it wrong if I picture "The Graduate" with Dustin Hoffman when reading this? Not poking fun trust me but stanza four and five really set that mood. many blessings
