Everything


It took so long to learn that he's my everything.
Through fights and lonely nights
He's still my everything
He stole my heart and I didn't realize
He's the one who cares for me
The one who makes me shake
He's like my fairy tale fantasy boy no one knows is true.
He accepts that I'm different
He accepts that I'm imperfect

I think of him so often
It's hard to pay attention to anything else
I think of why I'm holding back
I think scared
I think too much
You think we'll make it
And so do I
They think we will never make it past a year
We've had ups
We've downs
We've had laughs and tears
I could never say I love you to anyone the way I say it to you
My voice shakes
My stomach turns
My head spins
Just when I say I love you to you
It's the best feeling ever
I love you because you are you.

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
