two steps forward,
three steps back,
but we all know we can't live like that.
and with each sunrise there's another sparkle in your eye,
you leave me breathless.
in with the old and out with the new,
because all there is and ever was
has been this feeling of you.
the flowers, they blossom,
and our love it has too.
the sun presses your cheeks
and leaves me hoping you'll save
that warmth for me.
i can feel it your arms,
the sun's embrace.
burning into my skin as if
to imprint your soul into my own.
you are here now.
my chest holds steady,
each inhale just to bring you closer
than before.
our palms press and lock,
revealing the secret to sanity.
i have loved you well,
in dreams and in reality.
and as those paths crossed,
i found you here with me.
here is where you belong.
here is where i belong.
this is where we belong.
you are my home now.
you leave me breathless.
