    The fact that you are excites me
    The fact that you’re breathing
    Quickens my heartbeat
    The fact that your heart beats in rhythm with mine
    Fills my eyes with tears
    Because you are
    I am better
    And
    I’m happier
    Because I see God in you

    Your relationship with God
    Reassures me that you know
    What a relationship is supposed to be
    I look at you
    And I’m inspired
    You are one man
    That is to be admired
    I look up to you
    And not just because you’re taller than me
    But because you’re the type of person that I want to be
    You are the type of present
    I would like to be
    For you

    There is no way that I can thank you
    For being
    For existing
    So let me love you
    The only way I know how
    Tell me what you want
    Let me hold you
    And let all the imperfections of life
    Drain from you
    Let all your pain
    Drain
    Into me
    I will carry the burden for you
    So you can feel nothing but happiness
    If there is anything humanly possible
    That I can do
    To make your life perfect
    Even if it’s for me to leave you alone
    I will
    And love you from afar
    For the rest of my life

    If a cruel twist of fate places me in the arms of another
    You will have my mind completely
    My flesh may belong to another
    But my heart and spirit will
    Forever belong to you
    Because you have shown me what true love is
    By the way you love our Creator
    Your faith is amazing
    Your faith is a testament
    Your life is a testimony
    Job said “though He slay me, yet will I trust Him”
    And you have
    Though your trials may be many
    I could not get between you and life
    To protect you from the pain
    But I have watched you
    And learned from you
    And since the day
    I laid eyes on you
    I was not the same
    Thank God
    I will never be the same

    Maybe we’ll share a life together
    Maybe we’ll share a home together
    Have children
    Grandchildren
    Have the beauty of true love
    In its purest form
    But for now
    I thank God
    For sharing with you
    Life
    Love
    Passion
    The sun
    The moon
    The rain
    The air that you breathe
    You are beautiful
    You make me smile
    Even through my hardest battles
    All I have to do is think of you
    Or call and hear your answering machine
    And I’m focused
    And I know what’s going on in my life
    So right now
    I’ll get on my knees
    And praise God for your presence
    Because you are keeping me alive
    You make my life poetic
    Poetry lives
    Because
    You exist

    i :heart: u

    It's about time!!! A lot of people don't mention that God is necessary for a strong relationship. God is LOVE. Lovely piece and I think a lot of people need to read this.
