This feeling is like a flame that is forever fierce,
So intense that there is nothing it cannot pierce.
The temperature rises as my heart pulses like it has never before,
The flame continues to become wild so I can't predict what's in store.
You're the smile that brightens my life when trouble takes over,
Your eyes give me the hope I need to keep me from tumbling over.
I can always count on you to have my back when I'm against the wall,
Against all odds it's your motivation that keeps me standing tall.
You are my friend...someone who I would love to share my life with,
Also my crush who's personality has stopped my heart from being stiff.
For a long time I've had an ice box that replaced where I had a heartbeat,
Ever since you came along...the Cold War in my heart has claimed defeat.
Sitting on one side of the door waiting on that special knock,
Because Patience is what I have but the girl I do not.
Anticipation haunts my dreams as possibilities of a lifestyle including you and me,
Runs my imagination over the limits causing fantasies that you and I would love to see.
I'm waiting on the day you come to me with your heart ready to let loose,
With your mind made up instead of playing duck duck goose.
We can admit we are a perfect match like the stars and the moon,
And ironically at night I pray our day comes very soon.
This fire...this flame grows stronger yet slowly each day we come in contact,
I can tell cause the burning desire we have for each other has yet to slack.
I will and can do whatever it takes to show you all men aren't the same,
Just take my hand whenever you are ready to feed this patient flame.
