Honestly

Just know that it’s always on my mind
Anytime you look I won’t be hard to find

Time and space placed between us can seem bittersweet
I only pray that our time together now hasn’t begun to deplete

Honestly, I honor thee, a devotee 
All I ask is to believe in me

Things and people change and I know I fear
That you will get caught up in life and from mine disappear

In total complete aspiration I have been tried and true
I didn’t search for diamonds or monetary things, I only wanted you

Things haven’t always been clear and feelings don’t always exist
But the memories we have experienced I will deeply miss

My words have often times been gutsy, trust me 
But my intentions and actions have always been in great honesty

One day I hope you find someone whose hand you desire to hold
Let yourself become vulnerable and together you both grow old

I’ve done all I could do, I’ll let God do the rest
Just know I’ll always care for you and I wish you the very, very best.
