Original piece, I dont feel that I visualized the concept well.
20 years ago,
I learned you,
I knew you,
We were too alike,
But though I fell,
In love with you,
You were not mine,
I knew you,
You knew me,
Or we thought we did,

I met you six years ago,
I already knew you,
You already knew me,
As we progressed,
We knew each other,
As we knew ourselves,
I knew you,
You knew me,
Life still to live,

Recent years ago,
I knew the young you,
You knew the vintage me,
We knew we loved each other,
We moved slowly,
Like we should have before,
But as we know ourselves,
We are learning us,
We learn us each step we take,
Because in love, we don’t know anything,
Except that we love each other,
And we grow and learn.
