For not being what they thought you were
For stealing my heart and repaying it with yours
For loving me no matter
For never letting a day go by without saying ‘I love you’
For proving my doubts wrong time and time again
For being what I need to you to be
For lifting me up when I am lonely
For being my friend when no one else calls me
For loving me so well I can never want anything more
(Only more and more of what you give)
For providing for me
For kissing me
For hugging me and holding me
For never letting another man walk over me
For being my rock
For being my safe Haven
For being my comfort and peace
For calming me down
For hyping me up
For bringing me laughter
For your love for God
For your drive to do better
For your motivation to take me highest
For making me happy
For striving to be a man after God’s own heart
For being the husband a wife is not deserving of
For humbling yourself enough to marry me
For putting me before everyone else
For putting me before everything else
For letting nothing come between us
For keeping my spirits up when I feared we would never see each other again
For coming miles just to see me an hour or two
For all the things you plan to do
For my first Valentine’s day with you
For the bears, chocolates, heart’s, and kisses
For a love that still blazes on
For smiling when I’m happy
For granting my wishes
For being all you are
For answering every phone call
For texting me every possible moment you miss me
For spending time with me anytime possible
For putting your friends aside and putting me first
For putting them in their place when they said things about me
Thank you for all you do and will do
Thank you for changing for me
Thank you for making me so important to you that changing a few things about yourself is nothing
For your continuous love,
Don’t tell me that you are ok
And don’t say your fine, it was only one time.
We both know that you will keep going back to it.
You are controlled, like a puppet.
You are dependent on it
You crave it,
And give in time and time again…
You say it’s harder than you think and use that as an excuse,
To give up
That’s why you lose.
How are you supposed to ever become stronger if you never fight
And never have faith in the only thing that will defeat the hardest battles?
I don’t think you care.
I don’t think you want anything different…
You attract nightmares.
Clammy. Waking up in the middle of the night crying. Shaking. Begging God to erase the visions.
You have withdrawals and use wine and alcohol to help you cope.
If you life is so happy why do you have to escape?
Why not be sober?
Soak up the moment?
It’s because you are miserable. But you are addicted to misery.
And you want to change. But you don’t.
You are at war and in conflict about what life you want.
Heartache and pain is addicting…
And true happiness seems to take work.
So you stop trying.
Creativity is my avenue for happiness.
Light like a feather
Floating on the river of life
I’m in love with these butterflies I get when I am with you
When they crop up all I can do is set them free
Holding them captive would be such a tragedy
It’s obvious that you’re the better half of me
Although you, love, have my whole heart
I’m superhuman when were together
To deny me of you would be such a travesty
When the sun rises I see the ray’s brightness
It reminds me of the lightness in your heart
And as the sun sets and the dusk is formed
You are my moon, you shine in the dark
You’re such a beautiful constellation
You’re a legion of stars
An array of vivid colors
In the galaxy of my heart
This high I have
This irreplaceable happiness portrayed
It exemplifies the spirit I have with you by my side
And the joy embraces my soul as we sit alone tonight
