Uncertian - Poem by Heather Kemper

Each time you say I love you
my heart cries out believe!
He means it, he's not lying!
It's really meant for me.
But then my head takes over
questioning your intent.
Is it just because it's easy
a habit too often said?
I want to hope and trust this
believe again it's true.
That my world isn't crumbling
crushing all I knew.
My nights are filled with nightmares
I awake alone and scared.
Will you take our children and leave me
alone without you there?
I want to fight to scream
If that's what it takes
to make you stay.
To remind you what you promised
make you love me again one day!
To show you what my heart sees
when I think of what you give.
The years of love and laughter
of just loving me like you did.
The children that you gave me
the shelter you often became.
The arms I'd fall into crying
you'd always take away my pain.
You believed when no one else did
and you opened up my heart.
What you gave there are no words for
and that's simply just the start.
In your eyes I knew I'd found something
I'd been searching for all my life.
All the good I've had since
was all because you tried.
So when I think of losing that
and everything that's left unsaid.
My heart screams and panics
I'm full of fear and dread.
My world my dreams my everything
my ability to laugh not cry.
All I have is because of you
and because of you I try.
So when you say I love you
I'm afraid now to hope that it's true.
I believed once before that you meant it
Now I just wish I knew.
