my mind was a darker place than most could guess,
stone walls prevented any light from infiltrating it.
and i never ever would confess
the way to get past them, to make the bricks split.
i was unwavering in my loneliness and somber sadness
i suppose it was easier than giving someone the power to hurt me.
too many thoughts, my heartbeat became the sound of madness-
until you came along, and suddenly, again i could see.
you took my hand and embraced me, and the darkness around me
it didn't seem to bother you, you took it all in stride
i was in shock, in denial, i didn't know how this could be
you, so beautiful, so radiant, tall and blue-eyed.
never had i felt such compassion from another,
i felt like i didn't deserve even an ounce of it.
but around you, i smiled like no other,
and for the first time, i felt like i belonged, like i fit.
you were always there when i needed you,
almost never any hesitation when you knew i needed help
what did i do to deserve this? what did i do?
inside, all my brain could do was yelp.
demons inside were warning me, telling me i can't ever keep someone around
that i should run while i still could, to prevent getting hurt.
but before you i was lost, and suddenly i was found
so i forced my brain to have happier thoughts to insert.
we've had our fights, our bumps in the road
but i wouldn't trade you for anything.
to my big brick walls, you found the code
and so much warmth and happiness, you do bring.
i feel so lucky, i feel so safe
to have met someone as caring, and wonderful as you.
no relationship goes without strafe,
but anything i can, for you i would do.
you've got darkness too, but it doesn't scare me
i am unwavering, i will be by your side through it all.
i hope that someday, you will see
that i will always catch you, should you ever fall.
trust is a tricky thing, especially when someone's been hurt
we forget that there are people out there willing to give us unconditional love and happiness.
but, i met you, and since then all of those thoughts did divert
and now i'm just filled with sappiness.
i will hold your hand, i will kiss your scars
i will persistently try to help you heal.
you're everything, from here to mars
and i will teach you how real love should feel.
take my hand, and please don't be scared anymore.
i will protect you from everything i can, i will never stray.
i won't allow you to get hurt, i'll start a war
to keep everything evil away, at bay.
time is something i know you need, and i have plenty of it
and in case you ever forget...
good things are worth waiting for, i know this
and i'd wait as long as necessary, just to feel your kiss.
thank you for everything, you make me so happy
the least i can do is be patient with you.
i'm sorry, if this is unbearably sappy-
i just want you to know, i appreciate all that you do.
my arms are always open, confide in me whenever you want to
i will never hesitate to help you in any time of need.
i think of you, and being with you is all i want to do,
thank you, because of you, my heart will no longer bleed.
when you're lonely and taking time away,
you are the only one i want, and i will wait.
i know you're worth it, even if you don't agree-
and i know one day, you'll see what i see.
you are special. you are loved. you are one of the most compassionate, sweet, and beautiful people i've ever met and i am so unbelievably lucky to know you and have you in my life. don't forget it.
