As Her Sweet Atmosphere Drowns My Senses

Her sweet atmosphere drowns my senses

And out pours my heart in all life’s essence

We shared a walk as she reached for my damp palm

I smiled as I tried to keep the beat in my chest calm

I have never felt so warm on a cold winter Sunday

I knew that this woman would be the one some day

And it was March 7th of 08’

When our love’s potential became great

My world was beautiful because she was in it

We built our hearts a home bit by bit

Our time together was like a romance story

And we basked in our love and all its glory

But like a novel came the conflict

In real life, though, one can never predict

Infected by ego we both grew blind

The sickness brought pain that can’t be defined

Soon time brought on painful lessons

Too bad we didn’t count our blessins

I didn’t mean to dropp the gift that I’d been given

Or lose my grasp on the beautiful world we lived in

I’d look through my rain speckled window and saw her reflection

I hurt the only soul I loved when I was supposed to be her protection

I thank God for showing me what true love really was

Even the pain that true love really does

And here we are far from when we departed

I only wish to finish what love started

With her healing heart may she forgive me my past offenses

Back in her presence

As her sweet atmosphere drowns my senses
