I Saw You

I saw you tonight, in a brand new light
I let go of all my preconceived notions
The beliefs that kept you at arms length
That kept me safe and alone
I saw you tonight, for the first time
As a man, and a friend, and someone
I wish I could know more intimately
Without walls and fences
I saw you tonight, in a truer way I thought I’d never own
Than I had allowed myself to before
You laughed with an ease I never knew
And I felt for the first time, I saw you.
