Dear Lover

Lately found myself singing out your name, maybe I’m crazy if I am, I’m crazy for you. Sometimes thinking and wishing you were here; it turns me crazy. It’s you, you, you who make me lose my head. When I try to be careful and act sensibly, you drift into my head and turn me into a crumbling fool. Tell me to run and I’ll race! If you want me to stop, I’ll freeze and if you want me gone, then I’ll leave just hold me closer.

How can it be? That you’re here with me. Let’s start writing our own history and take this road, the long way home. With this state I’m in I can’t help myself but spin. You’ve got me running in circles; I don’t ever want to slow down. Let’s just keep spinning and keep going around. I haven’t felt like this for a long, long time. You got me smiling all the time, you know how to give me that, you know how to love me hard. For the first time it feels like there’s nothing wrong with that. You’re the one that I dream about all day, the one that I think about all day.

I didn’t fall in love with you. I walked into love with you, with my eyes fully open, selecting to take each step on the way. I actually have seen the best of you and also the worst, and I select both. A faithful love with two imperfect mortal beings who refuse to give up on each other. None of your scars can make me love you less. Some people search their whole lives to uncover what I found in you. No measure of time with you will be long enough but let’s start with forever.
