Today I realized what a fool I am. I have taken for granted the gift of love. Not the love that I have selfishly received, But the love I have at my disposition to give.   I did not see the pain in your eyes,
For why do I love you? Is it because of your soft, warm, inviting smile that ignites the smoldering embers in my heart?
I know we sometimes fight or hurt each others' feelings. I know we sometimes stop speaking because the pain is too much. I know we sometimes leave for the day still feeling upset, and I know we shouldn't. 
It's because I love you that when you enter the room I sense your warming presence That your touch is like dandelions swaying in the wind That when you look at me
you and me, should we be healthy should we share love, you and me.   Love. It is Love that makes us. But oh, oh what is it that makes love?   Because i love you i, your significant other, must
My fingertips were numb from the wind My skin scratched nearly raw Blind of touch, of warmth, of feel Absorbed completely in my flaws   My palms lost sight of what to grab My wrists unable to stretch
I once dated a boy who told me I had a big nose I mean he also said I was ugly, stupid, and fat But my nose… that one was new  
Fourth grade, when I was afraid To go home from school To the family that I never seemed To be apart of, She let me go to hers.   Sixth grade, when the math teacher Yelled at me for everything
You say you love me But what does that really mean? Is it that you treat me like a queen? Or eliminate the we so that YOU can be free
L o v e was domestic violence L o v e was emotional abuse  L o v e was choosing him over me L o v e was staying because you've already invested in so much time  L o v e was miserable  L o v e was pain 
Your sweet smile brings light to the dark Like the florescent moon in the night sky, Your laugh brings joy to my ears
My Dearest Love, How is it that one person so entirely enraptures another? You make my soul feel light and give my heart a reason to flutter! The worries I once had seem to melt away at the smile you give me,
Because I love you, walk home with me. I can take you away, where you can be young again, and free.   Because I love you, you don't have to worry, about your problems at home or in life.
Because I love you, I will wait Wait for you to finish doing your hair Wait for you to try on endless amounts of clothes Wait for you to calm down Wait for you to be ready  
Because I love you I call you when I wake. Because I love you I give you your space. Because I love you I am there for you when you cry And I stay when you yell. I don't ever leave When I know things are unwell.
Even when you're not yourself, feeling depressed, or not even wanting to have a conversation, I'll always be right beside you.
I said goodbye I let you go I stepped away Because I love you   You took it hard You yelled and cried
Blushing cheeks, Smiles bright, Nothing meek, No violent fights.   Hugs and compassion, Pleasant talks, No fatal attraction, or obsessive stalks.   Feelings of love,
Past relationships came with some complexity/ But helped bring out the best in me/ Helped me realize Love was more than sex to me/ I wanted you next to me/ But every word you said to me/
Love is holding your heart in the palm of my hand And you holding mine in yours It’s the thought that we could easily crush each other But the belief that we won’t  
My mom told me That I should always be a friend Little did I know What place that would end   You called me your friend And I called you mine Our friendship however
