I Write These Words for You

Location

I write these words for you,

I write these words so that you might see

that you are in the heart of these verses I write

you are the one in whom I believe.

 

I write the words, “You are beautiful”,

but you look in the mirror and say, “I only see my scars”.

You whisper to the ground, “My past has left me in the dark,”

yet I write the words, “You are brighter than the stars”.

 

I write the words, “You are my inspiration”,

but you turn away and sigh, “There is nothing anyone could admire.”

You let a tear fall out, “I am only me”

yet I write the words, “You are all I desire.”

 

I write these words for you

I write these words, but you refuse to believe

that you are here with me forever

you are the one that I could never leave.

 

You are the reason I write these words

You are who I will always be

I write these words for you,

I write these words for me.
