Before You Came - For Kelvin

Poetry is not my forte - but was feeling mushy :)

For Kelvin

Before you came it was hard
To get out of bed
To open the blinds
To let the light in

Before you came I was hard
Locked away in my tower
Behind the high walls
I'd built around my heart

Before you came love was hard
Full of self-doubt and loathing
Full of pain and heartache
Full of not good enough

But then you came
Gave me a reason to get out of bed
To open the blinds
You brought the light with you

But then you came
Climbed the tower
Broke down the walls
Slipped inside my heart

But then you came
Showed me love was easy
Gave me back myself
I know I'm good enough
