Favorite Quote:
A word to the wise is unnecessary. It's the stupid ones that need the advice. -Bill Cosby

If I could
have you in my arms
How long
Would you keep me there?

I dream
Every night
Nightmares and the like
I see you
all the time

Giving you the
Quickest hug
I’m dissatisfied
I wasn’t so held back
By all the stupid
Things I did

I long
to keep you
Like in my dreams
In my head at night

Let go
Of the worry
that haunts me
If I went
too far

I know
I didn’t
I never do
I’m so afraid
Of the doubt
that consumes me

I want
to stay by you
keep you with me

If I could
have you in my arms
would you keep me
want me
As much as I do?

Standing by you
Listening to you
I want to close
the five-to-six foot gap
between us
Take your hand in mine
Squeeze it tight

I want it so badly
to be just us
If I could have you
would you take me
Let me be with you today?
