So You

You found me and round me wound arms that made us
And we were made
And we toasted sunshine
And day-light became baby-light
And here we came to be.

And we came to sleep and weep the deep always on this side and that
And we were there
And we shared days
And courtship became friendship
And here we came to be.

And now I know you from all the things that are so you and the coat I bought you
And what I made
Of a chair where you do my hair and care, for me
And those lovely old hours blossom like flowers
At night
When I think of how we came to be.
