How Did I Know My Heart...

You said I had an open heart, a pure heart.
How did you see, what I did not know?
How did you reflect all this back to me?
How could I know the warmth I felt,
In the hearts of others,
Was a reflection of my own?
How did you see
So far into the heart of me?

How did I know,
I could love you so?
How did you know,
You could love me?
How was it we met,
At such a moment in time,
When hearts were seizing
And hearts were opening?

How did we know
How the heart could sing?
