You, with your carefree smile,
And your veiled secrets-
You did not presume to know
The truth I had been searching for.

You merely showed me how to live
Without questioning the universe,
Desiring a meaning in chaos,
Or deciphering the unknowable-

And quietly, imperturbably,
While I was laughing at your jokes,
And learning to love your quirks,
Too distracted to agonize-

While I was mesmerized by your eyes-
Over the course of a year,
Or perhaps that one fateful day,
Or maybe the minute I saw you-

You answered the unknowable.
