With that look in your eye,
My worries and fears fade in your presence
And I think I know why.
I didn’t want to fall in love
Not after what I’ve just been through.
Honestly, I didn’t think anyone could love me
And that is just what you do.
You never pressure or question me,
Never make me feel I’ve done wrong.
You simply watch me being myself,
Something I haven’t done in so long.
The fact that you can love me
Without making me feel you have to try
Is what I’d given up hope of finding;
It’s what brings tears to my eye.
You treat me better than I thought possible,
Always bringing a smile to my face,
Showering me with affection,
You brighten the darkest of my days.
So often you sit quietly
And listen to my fears;
You seem to be undeterred
By the events in my past years.
When you speak to comfort me
You know just what to say
Letting me know you love me
Even when I’m insecure in such a way.
In your arms I daydream,
Catching myself imagining our future together,
My mind whispers, “Take things slower,”
My heart demands, “I want to love you forever.”
