    I realize
    that
    My sole purpose
    For writing
    Is so that I may kiss your soul
    You see I never knew that
    The reason
    Why my heart flutters
    Whenever I think of you
    Is because
    At the bottom
    of my heart
    There is writing
    That says
    Made for you
    And it doesn't matter
    Where my heart is
    And who holds it
    It is still the property
    Of the one whose name is on it
    I guess that's why we connect so well
    Because
    We are two pieces of a puzzle
    That are designed to fit together
    Eye to eye
    Cheek to cheek
    Breast to chest
    Although you may not see it
    You feel it because
    Before your heart was beating irregular
    But now
    Hearts are beating
    Together in time
    Souls tied
    I would ask that you stay out of my dreams
    But
    I wont promise that I will stay out of yours
    and
    So I will continue to love you
    The only way that you will allow
    From a distance
    And even though my heart is not in your possession
    Your name is indelibly etch on it
    and in the midnight hour
    You will hear it calling to you
    Asking for permission to enter your dream
    Where I can present to you
    That which belongs to thee
