"I feigned sleep only to see if you would take out the blanket and see if I’m still there"
I’d turn off the lights and cover you so you may snuggle and sleep warmly
Adjust the fan and spread over the sheets,
just to make sure you’re not too cold, nor flushed from heat.
Close the windows, even out the bed.
And before you drift to dreams, a little kiss on your forehead.
I just hope you know, maybe you’re sleeping over there, but you’re always awake here in me.
Do you remember, love?
My thought revolves around you, and I question if you think about me, likewise.
And I wonder if you still remember all the old lullabies.
It doesn’t matter, I love you, and I’ll write more of them to bring light to your eyes.
“I’d burn your soul together with mine, as long as the darkness could drive you apart from the spaces I’ve left untouched.”
My dear, why you worry,
my heart is unwavering, forever steady.
My soul is deep, but there’s no unopened door,
come pry into my core, so you feel nothing but sure.
You don’t have to drive me away darling, you don’t need to,
because all the places that matters, bears the mark of you.
But lest you worry my love, fire us ablaze,
I’d do anything to make you feel safe.
I don’t know if you know
Everytime you smile at me
My heart leaps
And when you do it again
Another beat skips
We may be far apart, a thousand miles
But the shortest distance between two hearts, is just a soft smile.
let it flow in front of God as a witness
let it be the barrier that protects us from sinning
is a rock that keeps me from drifting
doesn’t know why its still here beating in your name
knows that romance doesn’t stand a chance without finance
is wondering if he’s a fool for hoping
will always keep me going.
“You know its me from the picture? Really? How?”
You have a mark on your eyes I couldn’t miss. I’d recognize them anywhere, especially like this.
Just like you wrote
I believe there’s a reason
Why we cross each other’s road
I can be a million miles away
But I assure you
That I’m here to stay
You can say that I’m an optimist
But I do believe
We’re meant for something bigger than this
