“I didn’t know if I’d ever see you again.
But you set something on fire within me.”
I admit it. You caught my attention before we even met. When I saw you standing there, it was like my whole world went silent. And I took my time. Taking in every line on your face. The way your hair moved in the breeze. The way you stood, confident and sure. That moment, it was something I’d never experienced before. The seconds stretched on just so I could see you a little longer. And I knew that moment would end. I didn’t know if I’d ever see you again. But you set something on fire within me I never expected.
You brought me to life.
