One Year's Time

July 29, 2008
By Alex Waite, West Des Moines, IA

The ocean won't stop me
I'll do whatever it takes
You aren't as far away as you think
If I was there once I can get there again

Why do you deny you're worth it
Worth the journey I'm about to embark on
How did you never see all the beauty
That drew me to you in the first place

One year's time is quite a while
You learned all there is about me
But I promise I can still surprise
You haven't seen the best of me yet

One month's time is all I need
Two weeks to soften my heart, two to ignite yours
Please let me open your eyes
And help you see who the real me can be
