    u were exactly what i wanted
    when i wanted it
    before i even knew what it was
    u appeared to me
    like an oasis to a thirsty man in the desert
    so refreshing and inviting
    i had to try and take a sip
    of what u were offering
    and just as i thought
    it was the elixir to my wounded spirit
    and i was renewed
    rejuvenated
    revitalized
    with all that u are
    i don't know how i got so lucky
    but i know u were more than i could have ever dreamed
    the moment u first spoke to me
    without saying any words
    the moment u first touched me
    without feeling anything tangible
    the moment u first kissed me
    without our lips ever meeting

    u were exactly what i desired
    when i desired it
    before i even knew what it was
    u came to me
    like a cooling rain on a hot summer's day
    u covered me with the shade of your protection
    and soothed me with the calm of your words
    and it was like i had visited heaven
    without having to die
    and i was restored
    re-established
    re-energized
    by your very presence
    i don't know where it was u came from
    but i know u were meant to come to me
    the moment u first saw into my soul
    without having ever looked in my eyes
    the moment u first undressed me
    without actually taking off my clothes
    the moment u first made love to me
    without physically entering me

    u were exactly what i needed
    when i needed it
    before i even knew what it was
    u comforted me
    like a gentle hand on a weeping shoulder
    u secured me with the blanket of tenderness
    and listened with the intensity of your heart
    and it was like my problems evaporated into the atmosphere
    without my having to solve any of them
    and i was reborn
    rekindled
    re-erected
    from your quiet strength
    i don't know how u eased my fears or quieted my tears
    but i know u were meant to be my comforter
    the moment u first dried my eyes
    without even touching them
    the moment u first healed my heart
    without my having to tell u what broke it in the first place
    the moment u fell in love with me
    without my having to ask u to

    and now i know that the it i was looking for
    has always been
    u
