It's always been you that made my heart skip beats over and over. Always like when you first said hi.
And I don't know why but you've been there when I thought nobody was ever there, you'll still hold onto to my hand although you know that makes me nervous .
And you've witnessed me breakdown over and over and over again, and you still stayed even when I requested you to go away.
You've been there the many times have had it my mind to do new things that I I'd never normally do . You've been there.
Even when I lost it all, you'd still remind me that I had let lost you with a broad smile cracking on your face.
And I personally don't understand how you able to do this over and over, because patience is the one thing I wasn't gifted with.
Hope is just dimming a little distant away because I don't even know what it means to be hopeful.
I don't think you really understand how very special you are to me, because I don't got words to explain how important you are.
And as gross as this might sound, you are the reason I remember to brush every day, wear that cologne you say smells like daisies you love.. You are really why I wake up ,just so o can see your smile and feel my heart stop for a few second as you wrapping your arms around me.
It's always been you that reminds me am not alone.
.its always been you that sets my heart on fire.
. It's always been you that leaves me breathless...
It's always been you. It's always been you.

A lovely piece of work, Amani.

The passion is felt across the words, but sad that he cannot express his true feelings, and that he keeps trying to push her away from his life. He says he knows it is her...the one he really wants, so why try to go in another direction.

Good read.
