    My biggest fear is to be alone and so far it has been a struggle. Like climbing the face of a mountain with no experience, but my attitude has been like bring it on! And I’m finding out thing about myself and I realized that it’s better to face my fears than run from them like the sun does the moon. I’m finding that I’m not a bad person, that I’m ok with hanging out with myself.

    My next fear is that she doesn’t feel the gravity of what I feel for her and it heavy
    It’s like that last drop of water during Katrina downfall that busted the levy
    And I could sit around all day wearing nothing but your kiss
    Boldly I venture as I am telling you this
    So I stand and make mountains jealous of how much I have grown
    And I realized that it’s you I want to be with since I’ve have spent all this time alone
    I no longer have to roam
    I understand why sailors kiss the ground once they make it home
    And what I said was “I’ll miss you”, what I meant to say was “I love you”
    What I wanted to say was that I meant what I said and I’ll put no one above you
    And these mountain tops are not too high for me to reach
    For I have found that they are not one of the best places for me to preach
    I mean who would hear me, standing on my soap box as I give my speech
    So I’m standing here, practicing what I teach
    For you it just that simple, I’d bend steel, until the ends touch
    I’d go above and beyond cause that would not be asking too much
    For you I’d speak a little slower and enjoy pronouncing every word
    I’d slow time down so we could see the wings on a humming bird
    And as I savor every second, every minute and every hour that we spend together
    To me I could care less about the weather, cause this here… can only get better
    And even my dreams can’t compare to the reality that is before me
    Just the possibility
    That maybe….
    Maybe… She see’s me
    See’s me for all I stand for in all my glory
    There’s many chapters to my life, but I want to write for you a new story
    And I pray that she judges me for today and not the past
    For it’s the future I can control and I plan to make this last
    Last beyond the lifespan of Jupiter or Mars
    And I’d fly into space and break constellations and rearrange the stars
    So that no matter where you are it would light a path directly to my heart
    And so I’ll end this, the same way it starts.
