Maybe This Love....

July 6, 2008
By Morgan Barton, La Crosse, WI

And maybe this love is how I fade into you,
Melting into someone new–
Someone I do not recognize
Because maybe this is who I was all along.

And maybe this person I’m becoming,
Is the person you need me to be
Because I’ve seen how hard you can fall,
And I know how I’m the only one able to pick you up.

And maybe I should stop doubting who I am,
Or who I was–
Because somehow you are loving me
And I find that I can‘t survive without you.

And now we’re here
And I know we cannot turn back
This love is something we fought for,
We left everyone to find out how we fit.

And maybe this moment is too perfect
Something I do not deserve,
But right now I’m here living this
And I never want to return to the past.

And maybe this love can’t end
Maybe I will forever be safe with you
Because for right now your arms are around me
And your love is how I fade into you.
