One. The sun is dim compared to
The light of your smile. It melts my heart
In the best of ways, all it takes
Is just one smile to make me sway.
Two. You carry a happiness I wouldn’t
Dare to dream of having. You make me
Sick, and yet it was frighteningly quick,
How fast I fell for someone I clearly don’t
Three. Your patience is short.
Your temper even shorter, I’d never
Thought I’d meet someone as mad as me,
As sad as me. Is this some sick twist of fate?
Are you really my destiny?
Four. You make me want to be
A better woman. You make me
Cry, and scream without even trying.
Am I dying? Is this what love feels like?
I haven’t felt love since I was a child,
It’s wild how easily you unravel
The past I’ve kept shrouded in mystery.
Five. Stop breaking down my walls.
The longer you’re here, the farther
You make me weak in the knees,
You make me smile and laugh,
And damn it, how am I supposed to be
Intimidating if I’m happy all the time?!
Six. I’ve never been good at comforting.
You think it’s your fault, but my darling,
There are things we can’t prevent,
People we can’t protect, no matter how hard
You were there when I needed you most.
So now I’m here, when you need me most.
Seven. Your smile isn’t light anymore.
You sway in between grief and depression
And it melts my heart in the worst
You carry a sadness that’s all too
Familiar to me, and I don’t know what to do.
Eight. I see more of me in you.
I wish I knew how to make you better.
Nine. Finally, you let me in.
I’m sorry. The hurt stings for a while,
But you have to move on.
I’ll be by your side,
Every step of the way.
Ten. I love you more than words can speak.
Twelve. So much more than in just thirteen ways.
Thirteen. I can’t wait to spend all my days loving you.
