Growing up I thought love was all about great times and good times when everything was just like it should be.
I had this picture of " always together " . Just great times and great memories each day.
And then I realized I was wrong all along and I grew scared of ever loving anybody cause I didn't wanna make a fool out of myself. Love was everything else, everything else apart from what I grew up telling myself.
. Then I met you..
Truth be told, I don't really know what am doing.
Most of the time am just silent because I may say stuff that may make you feel different about me, make you feel like am not really who you think I am.
I still have a lot of growing up left. But I wish to grow with you each day. Because you blow me away when you smile.
You make my head spin everytime time you say you miss.
You leave me breathless everytime you blow kisses my way.
And I wanna be perfect for you.
I wanna hold your hand every day and hug you when you feeling low.
I wanna take you out on dates and just listen to you talk all day because am never getting tired of it.
I wanna be there when you wake up so I can greet you," hello sunshine. "
I want to be the person you trust with everything in your life. I want to be the only one you think about when you troubled.
I want you to know I'll be there for you and am not planning on leaving. I want you to know that I love you more and more every single day...
I want you to know that you are the best thing that ever happened in my life.
I want you to know that I'll always love you.
Till death do us part..

Such a heartfelt poem. It is wonderful to be in love, but you must be yourself.
You want someone to love the real you.
I love how you express what you wanna do. It is great to know exactly how one feels inside.
