You're just as important to me As I am to you. So don't downplay yourself As if you're nothing. You are my everything. You are the face That I want to see when I wake up. The voice that I want to hear say, "Good morning, beautiful."

I've beaten depression for a while now, And I have been appreciative of the rain. But you, You make me want to go dance in it. Jump in some puddles. Because I am very happy
