The Bounds of Love

Mon, 05/07/2018 - 10:59 -- goldie

How do you love one person so much 

That the world just stops

That instead of a person 

They're just an idea 

A passion

 

They rule your thoughts

Your stories

They give you the life you want 

The dreams you love

 

They hold your world

They are your world

Your love

Your unconditional passion

 

As you grow

Your relationship does

Hand in Hand

Your strength is gained 

 

Living longer than your 

They know more

Showing the rules 

By living them 

 

But they will go

Live their life

And leave you to stand alone

Leaving only memories as a crutch

 

Each step you take

Acts as your first

Shaking

Unsure of the once firm ground

 

It's hard

As time goes on

To understand this 

To yeild to the concept of time

To bow to the idea of distance

 

But with distance

Stength can prosper

With time

Love can grow

 

Using

their love

Their passion

You become yourself

 

Not their shadow 

Their crutch

Not their fan 

Their wind

 

You realize

No matter how far 

they go

 

Your love for them

Will do nothing but grow

 

By defining love

You define yourself

 

You will never forget them 

For they are a part of you

 

Just as one takes a step 

You think of them

 

But the tears no longer show

Just a smile

 

A smile of joy 

Of hope
