You Make Me More Than I Was
By Rick Rucker
Where once, I thought myself complete,
With powers and abilities, replete,
You shattered all those crafted lies,
Filled the air with my sighs,
Where once I seemed so whole,
Loving you has exacted a toll,
You have turned my World upside down,
Built a smile, where there was a frown,
You have forced me to see,
That I can be more than ME!
Needless to say, this was a shock,
My reality you did rock,
You are such a charmer,
You did breach my impenetrable armor,
I never wish to go back,
To that lonely, single track,
I hunger to be always by your side,
On this glorious, scary ride,
I have given up control of me,
For the chance, in Love with you, to be!
My reality construct you have shattered,
Changed everything that I thought mattered,
At once you set my Heart free,
And yet, stole it away from me!
I guess you have the right,
You are the architect of my plight,
You have made me what I am,
Showed me that my life was a sham,
Made me want to say,
That I will love you every day!
