I guess I don’t really know how it all started
It just kind of happened.
Suddenly, you were there
You were there and every day was beautiful.
I don’t remember my life before you
And I don’t want to.
You’re a whole new level of heaven,
And it’s lucky for us that heaven is forever.
I’d be content to stand next to you
Just to breathe your air.
If I could, I’d constantly say, “I love you”
Until my lungs collapsed.
I’d marry you if you asked,
Or even if you didn’t.
You say you hate that nickname I gave you
But I know you smile
When you think I’m not looking.
And I never knew a home
Until your hand reached out to hold mine.
When I am lost,
My compass will always point to you.
Some days I gaze at the ink in my skin
And I think of the nights we spent in your bed
Fingers intertwined, tears in our eyes,
Dreaming we were birds
That could fly away and never look back.
There are some things I can’t do
But loving you has never been one of them.
Honestly, who wouldn’t love you?
If you ever have doubts, darling,
Just know that these feelings have always been mutual
And that you are always in my heart.
I can’t change the choices we’ve had to make
And I won’t lie and say it’s been easy
But if I could go back and do it all again
I wouldn’t have it any other way.
We’re still in control
Because we won’t stop ‘til we surrender,
And finally lose ourselves in this feeling.
Maybe our time is far away
But this moment with you is sweet enough
To last a lifetime.
