YOU AND I
I made you say hello
You made me say goodbye
You made me see myself in a whole new light
I made your daydreams come true.
I want to dance with you forever
You call my name in your sleep.
I take a vow that is not questioned
You have the ambition that is not weighed.
I gave my greatest when I was weak
Your hands played my favorite game.
I rushed to see the stars at night,
You settled in the warmth of July.
I carried a load of surprises to share
You brought your desires to bare .
I still remain in the midst of joy
You have another song to sing.
I awake with thoughts of dedication
You have a heart of good intentions.
I succumb to the glee and passionate spirits
You seek fortune and devise your spending time.
I find myself overshadowed by all the array
You found a way to get around the dismay.
You whisper sweet nothings to please the mood,
I write a verse to tell you more about our reflection.
You take a bite of every dish that’s now created
I roam among the flowers and bask in the fading glow.
You forget the number of days, hours that lasted so long,
I examine myself for reasons to want more.
You set your mind on the attraction and imagine it will remain
I am not re-captured by such a notion, nor trust in what’s left.
You know we must find where our hearts truly belong.
I design another day for riding upon the waves of hope...
that I am careful not to waste.
You were there in some ways ...and too many days we’re not together.
I will be true...Until we meet again.
