My heart stops, just for a moment
Now, it begins to race.
I feel the blood pump through my veins,
My breath quickens, my resolve weakens.
I hear tales,
Fantastically woven ones,
I wonder which ones are true,
Willing myself to believe only what you mean to me.
I clear my head of colliding thoughts,
Vowing to remain detached, emotionally, for now.
We all have secrets, we all face darkness,
But why can you not speak with me?
I’ve known you all my life,
How can you not see
That you are the world and more to me.
I am everything you’ve taught me to be,
I’ve learned from you the good ways and the bad.
Retracing my steps where you went wrong.
I pray for you, for your heart and soul,
Knowing, somewhere within, that you are still you.
The one I know has principles,
The one I respect has fears and doubts;
But it is nothing you can’t handle,
And so I continue to believe.
I fear disappointment, but stay strong,
I recoil from the rage.
In my eyes you are still perfect,
But the picture is marred.
It hurts that you don’t try,
To rectify the errors of your ways,
But to you I say, “I love you”
And forever more yours, I remain.
