I Won't Wait to Cry

I’m madly in love with you
But I still know who I am
I know where to mine my rare earth
I may come to you with dirty hands
Sometimes I need where the flower grew

I don’t want to hate the past
More than I love you today
It hurts so much to disagree
I don’t want any more to say
What scares me about losing you

I want to see nothing but the good in you
I don’t want to think what might go wrong
I’m gonna’ wait until then to cry
It’s a place called, “Is this where I belong?”

I’ve known you for so long
But I really didn’t until I began to care
It finally came to me in a dream
Everyone you ever knew was there
And they said you loved me too

I want to see nothing but the good in us
I don’t want to think about anything else
I’m not gonna’ have to wait to cry
With clean hands I’ll bury it all myself

Lots of emotional honesty in this beautiful poem Mark. You have a way with words.

Such a sentimental journey, Mark, you "Won't Wait to Cry" because you waited so long to discover her love was there for you. Very well said.
