My Game of Chance

I let you happen to me,

The way that fall changes the color of leaves

And the way that water washes up upon the shore,

Just to pull the tide back out again.

I let you happen to me,

Like the way the sheets are cold at first

But eventually warm to your body,

Lulling you to sleep.

I let you happen to me,

The way the sun and the moon

Dance with each other through the sky

Giving each other turns to shine

No matter the moment.

I let you happen to me,

And that you did.

But what I failed to realize,

Was that maybe in all these games of chance-

There was a chance,

That I was happening to you too,

So thank you,

For letting me.

-M.J.T.
