Mustn’t Have Been

Mustn’t have been you

But the one stepping through

that I am drawn to


It mustn’t have been you

but the one stepping through who I love

…Because I grew


It was you who made me love then bruised me and cruised,

Then returned to redo

And returned to redo again


That you taught me to question,

to hate,


to percolate issues

I thought were mine

Thoughts unkind

Insecurities of who?

Maybe of people I never knew?


That you was so mean

Right in between

Unforgettable moments

That had to be the one stepping through


Because the you I remember

Caused too many dark hues

The one stepping through

Makes my dreams come true


It just wasn’t you…

I hope it is the future you because nobody else will do.


John 17, NIV
