Play this, then read:
Here I am again
In the place where all it takes is a song
To bring me back to you.
I’m slowly starting to realize
that when night falls,
You’re the last one I want to give a bit of myself to
And the first one I want to see
when morning comes,
Before I give myself to you again.
Like the beginning of every new thing
I keep at a distance, let you breathe
When I see you,
I want to binge
Drown myself in you,
In the smell of your skin.
No, it’s never enough
Through momentarily satisfied
I always want more
Until the sun finds us together
Then I’ll give in to sleep,
Fall into your arms just to find you again in my dreams.
I absolve myself of any and all blame,
It’s your fault that I feel this way-
Recall the flowers, the phone calls,
the sweet words you whispered
The touch of your hands, the laughs,
and culinary adventures,
The tears you heard spilled and the words you didn’t say
When you kissed my forehead
and just held my hand.
So here I am,
and I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else
Than here with you
making love by the window,
dancing on this kitchen floor,
forgetting the past
And swirling big cups of wine by candlelight together,
As we cheer to the future and move forward
