when it happens to you

when it happens to you,
a thought will cross your mind —
maybe your (smug) coupled up friends were right:
it happens when you’re least expecting it.
when it happens to you,
falling is an inaccurate descriptor —
you have never been more grounded:
yet, for the first time, elation is your baseline
& ecstasy is within (reasonable) reach.
when it happens to you,
you find (steadying) inner peace —
with every passing day, it is clear:
by being together, (each of)
you will become exactly who you were meant to be.
