When You First Kissed Me

Blissful tides
and the changing sea
I wish you could've felt
what I felt
when you first kissed me
I wanted to swallow 
you whole
and I never wanted you
to let go
As the dawn crept in
and the sunlight
touched your skin
Oh, I knew right then
that I had to let
you in
Oh, the beat 
of my heart
came pounding 
so hard
I got lost in your eyes
because feeling you that way
was a calming surprise
So I kissed you again
and again 
and again
And ever since then
you've changed my bones
And where ever you are
will always be
my home
