Confession Of A Mere Immortal

Rating: 4.9

I thought today was the day I was waiting all my life,
the day that our bodies are finally getting married
because our souls are already joined...
But the day I was waiting for
came long before today.

It came when I've met you,
at that cafe we both loved
and we sat there for hours
opening our hearts to someone we knew only for a day..

It came the first time we kissed
under the tent,
in your backyard,
while we were guessing the shapes of the passing clouds..

It came the first time you said I will always love you
and you looked into my eyes to seal your promise..

For me you are the number one,
the number two, the number three,
the endless universe...

I wish I could find a million ways
to show my love to you,
I wish I could write a million pages
to express my gratitude for standing by my side
when all the world seemed to be against me,
I wish I could exchange a thousand breaths of mine
for one of yours, so that you could live forever..

Instead I'm here today,
a mere immortal,
promising to give you my angel,
every single fragment of my heart
because you had its love all along...

I love you..
