I Saw You

I saw you
in a different body and name.
I saw you
protecting me
because I was younger than you.
If it was only one seat left in the raft,
if it made sense to let it go,
it would always be for the youngest,
the feeblest of all.

I called you with a different name then.
I’ll call you with a different name now.
If life could be repeated over and over again,
I should have recognized you from the start.
And if we meet again this time,
would it make any difference
if I tell you how much I thank you?

*Inspired as listening to The Scientist by Coldplay.
