'Til There Was You


5. 'TIL THERE WAS YOU? (12/02/2004)

by Miranda Rafferty

'Til There Was You?

I've been a cop forever it seems. I asked for SVU, and for all these

years my work was enough. I lived for my job, it gave me a sense of

purpose. It fulfilled my every need.

'Til There Was You?

Casual flirtations, the rare actual date, and all the one night

'Til There Was You?

Life is worth living, life has a purpose other than my work. Now

there is meaning and most importantly a future.

Now there is you.
