To My Ever Lasting Valentine

Returned Love Returned Love I've been awake but I was sleeping Remained alive but I was still And any happiness worth keeping I couldn't easily fulfill I was surviving but was drowning My heart was beating but stayed back Whatever joy that I was feeling Was almost always under attack I've eaten but I was hungry Was independent but wasn't whole Alone I handled what was needed Tried to stay warm, but I was cold MY life was filled with hills and valleys I went through many ups and downs But when I needed the one to rally My special someone was not around The person that I most required Was living a completely different life And what I mostly would desire I couldn't make it come alive When you came back, my heart re-started And I began to come alive And ever since, I've known the meaning Of a fulfilling, joyful life © a year ago, Alona love • appreciation • happiness Copyright © Alona Perlin | Year Posted 2
