Mine - Poem by Rebecca Pepper

This may seem sappy and may seem weak
But I wish to find what so many seek
A happy feeling with neither reason nor rhyme
A simple perfection that only I can call mine

Some may say that what I wish for is not real
That I act like the starved before a glorious meal
But I so desperately want to feel so free of any confine
To lay beside, to walk alongside the one I call mine

They say that what I seek is nothing but a fairy tale
But I truly hope to succeed where others may fail
Find the one who holds my tears, makes everything fine
I wish to hold their heart and for them to hold mine

So I will listen to my soul and not these broken fools
And find the one that my possessive mind can't rule
I know first-hand that I have some major flaws
But I hope I can find the one to which I can say ‘I am yours'
