Sooner

Part of me wishes we could have met sooner,

Stolen glances and random passers lead us to here,

But, I wish I could have more time, to get to know all your inner thoughts,

How will your love feel in a couple of years time?

What are you like with your closest friends?

I wish I could have been brave sooner, swallowing doubt and fear

And being met with warmth and openness I needed.
