It Was All Of That

I thought it was the words,
  but it was more than that

I thought it was the feelings,
  but it was more than that

I thought it was the understanding,
  but it was more than that

And I thought it was the insight,
  but it was more than that

I thought it was the lyric,
  but it was more than that

I then thought it was the melody,
  but it was more than that

I thought it was the joy they brought,
  but it was more than that

And I thought it was the talk I talked,
  but it was more than that

I thought it was the times,
  but it was more than that

I thought it was the friendship,
  but it was more than that

I thought it was the love,
 but it was even more than that

And on the day that I stopped
  thinking
    —it was all of that!

(Villanova Pennsylvania: March, 2015)
