May I?

I want to be the one on your mind
before you fall asleep.
I want to be the memory
you always want to keep.
I want to be the kiss
that never leaves your lips.
I want to be the girl
you're always gonna miss.
I want to be the fire
that drives you to be better.
I want to be surprising,
changing with the weather.
I want to be the song
stuck in your head all day.
I want to be the thought
that just won’t go away.
I want to be the heartache
when we’re far apart.
I don’t want to be an ending;
I want to be the start.
I want to be the reason
for that little grin.
I want to be the butterflies
and the tingle on your skin.
I want to be the one
you call to share the news.
I want you to show me
a different point of view.
I want to be the laugh
that you can’t contain.
I want to leave you different
so you’ll never be the same.
I want to be your hope
when things are looking bad.
I want to be your comfort
the days that you are sad.
I want to be the spark
that sets your soul on fire.
I want to be the one
your unknown desire.

...I think it's your best. It's so beautiful I nearly cried. The rhythm works so well will the words-amazing job.
