LOVE & LIFE

I'D RATHER WADE THROUGH TURBELENT WATERS,
WITH YOU THERE BY MY SIDE,
'CAUSE I KNOW I'M BETTER WITH YOU, A MOMENT,
THEN A LIFETIME WITHOUT YOU,
ACCOMPANYING MY PRIDE.

I'VE SEEN BITTERSWEET MEMORIES,
DANCE THROUGH MY MIND'S EYES,
GIVING ME THIS HISTORY............
LESSONS TAUGHT,
EMOTIONS I CANNOT HIDE.

BUT THROUGH IT ALL,
YOU WOULD NOT LET ME SETTLE,
NEVER ALLOWING ME TO FALL,

LOVE.

I'M GLAD YOU'RE HERE,
I SWEAR!!! 
AS THE MY TEARS BEGIN TO TUMBLE DOWN,
UPON THE GROUND,
LESSONS LEARNED,
TROUBLE DON'T LAST ALWAYS,
CARRY ON!!!!!!!

LIFE.

SOMETIMES, 
YOU AREN'T SO NICE!!!!!!
BUT WITHOUT YOU, 
I'D PAY THE ULTIMATE PRICE.

SO I GUESS I'LL EMBRACE YOU,
AS I FACE YOU,
KEEPING PACE WITH YOU,
THROUGH EVERY STEP,
EVERY STRIDE. 

YOU CAN BE SO FUNNY,
SOMETIMES.

BOTH OF YOU,
HAVING YOUR WAY,
WITH ME,
AND COUNTLESS OTHERS SOULS.

I PRAY YOU GIVE US LONGEVITY,
AS MY EYES CLOSE,
CONSOLED AS I BREATHE,
YOUR MERE ESSCENCE,
INHALING BREATH,
SOON,
AS I EXHALE.

YOU NEVER SEEM TO FAIL!!!!!!!

TO BRING ME BACK TO YOUR REALITY.

I GUESS THAT'S WHY............
LIFE.
I LOVE YOU,
AND,
LOVE,
THANK YOU,
FOR BEING A PART OF,
A PART OF MY
LIFE.
