Before I fall asleep each night,
It is your face that bounces around in the darkness across my eyelids;
And it is your name that spins in the back of my mind,
Making me miss you more than I already do.
I've allowed you to get close to me despite my minds small objections;
Because my heart wants you here.
But I'm still scared,
despite all the positivity and happiness you continue to bring me.
Nothing in my life has ever felt this right,
And life has a way of making everything go wrong for me.
The people who promise to stay,
The people who promise to love me,
walk away without a glance.
And the people who promise not to be like everyone else,
Always turn out to be exactly the same.
I want you to be different.
So don't promise me anything,
because promises made to me are never kept.
Just be here.
Don't leave me and don't ever break my heart,
Because you don't have to be the love of my life to do that.
Friends do it too.
And if I were to ever ask anything of you,
It would be simple.
Don't ever change;
You are perfect the way you are
Flaws and all.
And if you do change,
I don't see you as the rest of them;
I only want you to be here,
