wide open sky
a la seconde arms
love’s embrace

I want, want
what you want
I go, go
where you go
I live
live love you
I breathe, breathe
the air
it’s there, there

I fly, fly
away with you
I miss, miss
your presence
your essence
but you, you’ll
be home soon
soon, soon

I’ll love, love
you more
much more, then
cos absence
makes my heart

grow, grow
stronger and better
less hard
less bitter
more, more
love loving
lovingly adapted
adept able alive
give, giving

hold, hold
hold me tight
in the dark, dark night
not tonight
but soon, soon
I’ll delight again
in your loving

I want, want
what you want
I go, go
where you go
I live love,
live love you
I breathe, breathe
the air
it’s there, there

    I hope he deserves such devotion, and returns it in kind!

  • aw yes, he is the truly the one constant in my life, that person I can always depend on, I’ve never known anyone as hardworking, or as kind and loving and talk about patient. .. lol.. he is also the best dad in the world. his kids (our kids) love him and he spends a lot of time with them and me, and even learned how to cook, helps me with the chores, he really sounds too good to be true. he has his flaws tho, as I know I do, but for me, he is the best match I could have ever hoped for :) xox
