She is Love

I’ve been beaten down,
I’ve been kicked around,
But she takes it all for me.

No matter what I’ve been through, she has been there for me, encouraging me to keep up the good work. She’s felt for and helped me to see that I was doing my best. When I was at my lowest, she was there for me. When my plans to go out of my way failed, she was there for me. She took on so much of my pain that at times, it didn’t feel as bad as it actually was. I love her for that. She’ll never know what that meant to me. Even now, she tells me that my past does not define me. What defines me is the way that I treat her now and the way that I have always treated her. She knows the real me, the true me, the me that I love to hide from the world.

And I lost my faith,
In my darkest days,
But she makes me want to believe.

After all I have been through; she still has the ability to make me believe in love. Love. It was something that I had given up on for so many reasons. I no longer believed that doing the right thing would be appreciated. Spending time with her, I see that I was wrong. She gives me a reason to do right. A reason to be the best person that I know I can be. A reason to love. She takes away the darkness. She brings light to my world. A world that once desolate, cold, and morbid. Now it’s filled with flowers and rainbows and sunsets and butterflies. My heart has thawed out and now has a reason to beat. Thump thump thump. It beats for her and only her. It calls her name.

They call her love, love, love, love, love.
They call her love, love, love, love, love.

She is love, and she is all I need.

She’s all I need.

Well, I had my ways,
They were all in vain,
But she waited patiently.

I tried so hard to be the best person that I could be. I focused on the little things. I made sure that the thought always counted. Nothing worthwhile ever came to fruition. I went above and beyond to bring smiles to faces, only to end up with nothing in the end. She’s even helped me to plan things. I have helped her to plan things. Relationship after relationship, I tried and failed to show the other person a love that I was appreciated for. It tore at me from the inside. It changed me. Throughout it all, she was there. She never left my side. She watched and waited as I continued to fail to be the person that I was meant to be. She didn’t try to sway me to her. I think that deep down; she understood that I had to go through the roughest of times to appreciate something special. Eventually we came together and we got what we wanted, needed, deserved from the beginning. We got each other.

It was all the same,
All my pride and shame,
And she put me on my feet.

Down on my knees and feeling out of it, she picked me up and helped me to my feet. She held me and told me that everything would be alright and I believed her. Hell, I loved her, anything that she told me, I would believe. I was ashamed. I was ashamed of wasting my time and efforts on those who didn’t know how to accept it as true. I was ashamed that after all I did, I ended up alone. My pride told me that I was doing better than most, but it was not enough to get out of the state that I was in. She was the only one who was able to do that. She was the only one who could get me out of the dark place.

They call her love, love, love, love, love.
They call her love, love, love, love, love.
They call her love, love, love, love, love.

She is love, and she is all I need.

And when that world slows down, dear
And when those stars burn out, here
Oh she’ll be there, yes she’ll be there.

There’s no more fear of the future and what is to come. My future is no longer a place that I fear in the back of my mind. There is one important unknown that has now come to light. I look forward to my future because I know that she will be a part of it. I can’t wait to show her exactly what she means to me in ways that she may have never had experienced. I know that she will do the same for me. Forever and always, I know that she will be a part of me. The best part of me. This time, whatever it takes will have true meaning.

They call her love, love, love, love, love.
They call her love, love, love, love, love.
They call her love, love, love, love, love.

She is love, and she is all I need.

All I need in this world right now and forevermore is her. For the rest of my life, I will love her and everything that she is. As long as I have her by my side, I can do anything. Nothing seems too out of reach. She is the love of my life. She always has been and she always will be. We’re finally where we belong.

She is love, and she is all I need.

She loves me with all of her and I love her with all of me. No other will ever be able to replace the love that she has given me. I will shower her with so much love that she will never need anything, never long for anything. Nothing makes sense without her. What I feel when I am with her, there are no words that can describe it. There aren’t enough. No matter how much I try, nothing comes close to expressing exactly what feelings she brings to me.

She is love, and she is all I need.

She’s all I need.

Walking Back to Her

I can’t live without her…

I know she must hate me for walking away, but we both knew that it was the best thing to do at the time. What matters now is that I am here. I want her. I need her. She stands in front of me and waits. Her head is bowed and she only looks at me occasionally. I smile at her when she looks up and she blushes, but she still doesn’t move. We are just here, three feet apart, looking at each other. No words are said. I feel the magnetism between us that is pulling us to one another and I know that she feels it too. I open my arms and she rushes to me. Her head lies on my chest next to her hand. I kiss her on the forehead.  I hold her. I know that she’s crying, so I don’t ask. I just let her and start thinking.

She’s Mine. I’m Hers.

I came back for her. I came back for me. I came back for us. It’s been too long that we ran away from the feelings we both had for one another. It’s been too long that we pretended that we are just friends. It’s been too long that we watched each other suffer in relationships we both knew wouldn’t work. It’s been too long that we denied ourselves of being happy by being selfless. We deserve better. We deserve each other. This step that we are about to take is the one we should have made in the beginning.

The future is in our hands…

This is where we were meant to be

I look to the future and I see her. I look in her eyes and I see my future. Life finally feels like it’s being lived to potential. I finally feel like I have purpose. I am complete. I am happy. I never knew what it was like to feel happy, but every day that I am with her, I know happiness. I wake and think of her and right before I drift off to sleep I think of her. Every moment in between, I am happy. Just knowing that she is mine and that we are finally together makes me happy. I can face anything with the feeling she gives to me.

My Vows…

Now that we are finally together, it is my duty to make sure that I keep her as happy as possible. I will not force it on her, but I will make sure that she is able to be happy. I cannot promise happiness, nor can I promise that nothing will go wrong. I can only promise to be there when I can. I will try my best to never let her down. If I make plans, I will see them through. I will never leave her feeling unwanted or that someone else can take her place. I will always listen first and then be heard. I plan for the occasional fight, but we will get through each one and come out stronger. We will never go to bed angry. We will always go to bed in love. I will always accept every bit of her, as I always have. Every nuance, every personality trait, every aspect of her life will be accepted. I accept her completely. I promise to love her for as long as both live. Nothing and no one will come between us.

I love her…

She finally takes her head off my chest and looks up at me. I come back to reality and look down at her, into her eyes. For the first time in a long time, she doesn’t break her stare. In what seems like an eternity, we just look at each other lovingly. Her head tilts and I bring mine down to her. We kiss. When we break, we still say nothing. We don’t’ need to say anything. We have always been able to speak to each other without words. I still need her to hear that I love her, so I tell her. A tear falls down her cheek and she says it back. I hold her close to me in an embrace I wish would never end. We are in love. This is forever.

 

If I lose myself in her and she loses herself in me, then we will find ourselves in each other…
