I thought I would always be finding

My way to another starting point as my feet reached dead ends

the same me, walking new paths as I continued forward

Yet this time you’re here, walking beside me

And together we’re on this leg winding

 

You have waited for me at my next post

Letting me get here in my own time

Allowing our lives to finally line up

Both our settings say ready

So we venture toward what we want most

 

I’ve found my mate

I could have gone with others

Some even looked like you

But no one else in the bucket matched

There may be countless more

But there’s only one you

And now we’re a pair like socks

 

When first asked about you, I said no

I couldn’t believe it could be

That the ultimate beauty I’d see

If only I’d open my eyes and my arms

the one beating the drum below my collar is my beau

 

I’ll combine my load with yours

So those burdens you won’t carry alone

We’ll wade through the creek, soaking freshwater

Then we’ll hang our packs and clothes beside the falls

The mountain breeze tumbling them dry after rain pours

 

I’ve found my mate

I could have gone with others

Some even looked like you

But no one else in the bucket matched

There may be countless more

But there’s only one you

And now we’re a pair like socks

 

In a place where normal doesn’t exist

We’ll select our own settings

Softening the permanence of our scars

And seeking the fabric to wear for life’s use

All freely loving as brightly as when we first kissed

 

Our cycles may come at a cost

Needing delicate care and to be washed

To keep us from staining the room we share

Under the trees where we reside as the leaves fall and bloom

Ever reminded of the place our path first crossed

 

I’ve found my mate

I could have gone with others

Some even looked like you

But no one else in the bucket matched

There may be countless more

But there’s only one you

And now we’re a pair like socks
