Shelby Lanier

(October 23,1993 / Raliegh, North Carolina)

Every breath that I breathe


It has happened
Finally once again
My breath was caught
Which I could not contain

Every minute you’re on my mind
I can’t get rid of you
Or the words you say,
Or the things that you do

When we’re together
I don’t want to leave.
To say goodbye,
Is one thing I just can’t achieve?

You’re every movement
Makes me think of you more
And I count the seconds
That we are apart!

I long to be with you
To see your smile one more time
Then you tell me that you love me
Which by is just fine!
