Sweet Surprise

Sweet, sweet surprise,The depth of my feelings for you, Was something I never prepared for,I am a planner, I think ahead, I organize and I execute,Surprises aren’t my think, It requires me to let go andRelinquish control,You flew into my life, At a time when I was leaving it all up to fate,To see what…

I Knew
