Its the chance I have to take.
It's been a few years now, but I had the love of my life already... there's no doubt in my mind.
I loved her from the moment she sat down next to me and we started chatting.
Soon after, we walked together hand in hand and the Father told me she would walk with me all my life.
Some would say she was my dream girl, but I can't.
She actually exceeded any dream I had.
I can actually remember thinking, "It's too bad she is so beautiful and has so much going for her... she'll never stay with me."
I loved her, but I had been hurt before... so she terrified me.
I started to push her away, unable to bear the thought of life without her,
But knowing how much more it'd hurt if she stayed... and left me further down the road.
But she did stay.
And that made me love her even more... which terrified me even more.
I pushed and pushed, but she fought for love.
And love her I did.... but she never knew how much.
Eventually, a thought came to my head and my heart...
"Hey, maybe she really does love you and will never leave!"
I loved that thought... and I loved thinking about being with her all my life.
I was thrilled that she was my lover and I wanted nothing but for her to be my sole companion for life.
But she never knew.
I had been trying to act like I couldn't be hurt for so long that she grew to believe that I didn't care.
Just as I was opening up to how much I could love her, if I just got past my fear,
She was realizing that she had loved me too long without me making my love for her as clear.
She left me and my world turned on it's side.
I'll never be the same, I'm sure,
But if I ever have the chance to love again,
I'll love like I've nothing to hide.
Love alone is worth the fight!
