i thought i was being smart to listen to your words with a guarded heart but little by little, your words made it through and before i knew it, my heart lay bare before you
i didn’t even realize it happening until tears ran down my cheeks, so unsettling how could such words break through all the years of walls and fences meant to cover up my fears?
maybe that’s just one of the ways love weaves its magic little by little, healing armored hearts so fragile reminding them there’s magic out there just waiting if only they step out of their armor and taste the rain
if i could give you all the love in the world, i would write it all down in a book in all the languages that i could think of no matter how long it took
so i caught all the words I needed one day telling them they were meant for someone precious to me a good friend with the biggest heart who reminded me i was loved and that i was worthy
of everything good the world had to offer just like he deserved only the very best, too, i wanted him to know all this and more so i begged Love to be still before my plan would fall through
but all the words had other plans as they struggled to lift off the page ruffling the pages of the book in front of me for they did not wish to be caught nor caged
we do best when we’re set free, they said and that’s exactly what you’re going to do so you can give him all the love you could ever want matching every bit of love he gave to you
for some things in life are simpler than they seem like a heartfelt wish sent with the purest intentions so if you wish to let him know how you truly feel just say the words, no need to make an impression
and after some thought, that’s exactly what i did as i flipped through all the pages and let the words go for you already know how much you mean to me, i just wanted the rest of the world to know.
