One Life

Submitted By: susan7

We lived worlds apart
Grew up in different families
Developed our own personalities
Made choices and made friends
Made plans for our futures
Left our homes
To venture out on our own
To pursue university and dreams
Attempting to grow up
To make the right choices
And eventually we did
At the same time, we both made a choice
A choice that brought our two separate worlds together
A choice that gave us the opportunity to know one another
To explore life together
To love each other
And to make the choice
To join our separate lives into one life
