The dawn is breaking, a light shining through. You’re barely waking, and I’m tangled up in you.
Waking up next to you. Alarms going off, phones are ringing, obligations need to be met. I’d much rather sleep next to you for another hour or so. I’d much rather spend the day wrapped up in these sheets.
I’m open, you’re closed. Where I follow, you’ll go.
I don’t mind being led. You take me places I’ve never seen, places I’d never usually go. You break me out of routine. There is nothing I would trade that for.
I worry I wont see your face light up again.
Everything is so fragile, always on the verge of being broken. What if today was the last time I got to hear you laugh? What if this was the last time I watched your face light up in response to something I said? I couldn’t bear it. I would only be able to recall that memory for so long.
I’m quiet you know, you make a first impression.
You light up a room. I can stand back and watch you shine because the residual effects of you have always worn off on me. I’m happy standing a step or two behind you because then I have front row seats to the beautiful reaction you evoke from people. It has been breathtaking.
I’ve found I’m scared to know I’m always on your mind.
For me, you stay in the back of my mind most times. I think twice when it comes to a lot of things now. I react to everything in a new way too. My eyes open in surprise and I cant take the smile off of my face to save my life. The smile you create stops people in their tracks. They look at me like I’ve solved all the troubles we face. They are jealous, I can see it written on their faces. And yet, they have no idea why I smile. That’s the power of you.
Even the best fall down sometimes. Even the wrong words seem to rhyme. Out of the doubt that fills your mind, you finally find, that you and I collide.
What never made sense now does. What seemed impossible to have, is now sitting in the palm of my hand. Thinking you would never feel again, and having your faith restored, is a beautiful thing. All possible because we managed to collide. Sometimes being victims of circumstance isn’t such a bad thing.
