Throughout my youth
Beyond my interests I had not seen
My life was the only truth-
Maybe I gave my attention away
Briefly, when in love I fell
But once love matured back in the day
On my love I could no longer dwell
I was restored to my former state
Where I, me, and myself ruled
Relevant was only what affected my fate
This was how myself I fooled.
Then I had this encounter unforeseen
When I gave birth to you
More scared in my life I had never been
As I was now in loving you
As I held you, you made me realize
That my heart was no longer mine
In you, my soul I did externalize
As I experienced happiness divine.
Life was no longer all about me
My selfishness now took a backseat
With a fresh pair of eyes you taught me to see
For me, this was an extraordinary feat!
