When I want to go home,
I retreat into your arms.
I wait for your touch
to protect me against
everything that I have ever
ran away from.
But now your arms
are starting to weaken.
I no longer feel safe
surrounded by the towers
that once kept harm
so far, far away.
Sometimes you just have to realize that the person you need most doesn’t need you anymore and no matter how you wish them to remember the happy memories you had together, all the things you did for them and sacrifices you made for them – to bring back the special feeling again, it will be to no avail; it no longer matters to them.
There’s a simple phrase they can’t even utter to you - it isn’t that they don’t love you anymore — that would be easier to bear. It is that they don’t need you anymore.
Oh my dear, though I don’t know you
I really can’t wait to see you.
I’m truly quite excited
To learn all about you.
For all the times to come, and
All the memories we have yet to unfold…
I can’t wait to hold you,
Walk hand in hand with you,
Soaking in the freshness of the moment,
And sharing a silence that means more than words.
I can’t wait to bake brownies
Really late at night with you…
Maybe I’ll make you your morning coffee.
And some hot chocolate for myself
I’ll place our mugs beside each other,
Watching you grin as I pour myself more sugar.
I want to watch you silently, from a distance
As you move around the house, making it yours…
And then I’ll kiss you tenderly,
Wait for you to give in, and kiss me back
And that night I’ll smile as I fall asleep,
Knowing you’re mine.
I don’t know you, my dear,
But whoever you are, I can’t wait to meet you…
