I love you.
I want you to know what I see When I look at you. I see an explosion in my heart I see the valleys rise above the sea I see the mountains touch the sky I see diamonds in the roughest parts of me. I want you to know what I feel When I look at you. I feel like I could touch the moon I feel like I could climb the highest mountain I feel something I have never felt before I feel something I may never feel again. I want you to know what I want When I look at you. I want to know nothing but that truth I want to know everything that ever was I want to know everything that will ever be I want to know…you. I know that you are used to this This feeling you inspire But I am not used to having it inspired within me And it takes time for me to understand. Yet I will never stop trying And I will never stop striving To be the best for you that I can be. I will never stop wanting And I will never stop loving You Regardless of the ideas my mind creates Or the challenges that you bring into my life Because the rewards are the most beautiful And the moments the most perfect That I have ever known. So, if you love me and you know the truth of those perfect moments Stay. Know them with me, and walk with me into that good light. Show me the power of the heart that guides you And the intelligence of the mind that speaks for you With the strength of the character that makes me want to surrender to you. I will give you all of me and stay true to you in turn Knowing that if anyone deserved that part of me it was you. I am sorry for the challenge of me and I am sorry for being so unsure In the challenge that is you. I am sorry for tripping over my own two feet And believing the wicked stories of others in my mind. While forgetting who you are to me, to us, And trying to prove my own strength in the process. I am nervous yet I am sure. I am nervous because of the bruises on our hearts And the distance we cannot help but share. I am sure because of the feelings you give to me Even on the coldest winter’s morn And the hottest summer’s day That make it all so perfectly perfect. Put your hand here, on my chest And heal me. I will kiss you where your heart beats loudly And heal those parts of you. The story has been written my love And when the book finally closes for the final time It will still be you, and it will still be me And what a story we will have told. Because when I look at you I know I don’t see what others see I see love looking right back at me I see a woman who loves me Who wants me Who needs me Who saves the best of her for the worst of me And who saves herself for the best of me. No, they don’t get to see what looks at me So I am the luckiest fucking man in the world A man not used to being so lucky Now smiles in the glow of your love Wanting to take the best of you for the best of me Today, tomorrow, forever.
