Who am I too you?
A simple question, passed between lovers who –
At times, find themselves caught in the humdrum of life,
Wondering, how and why –
Did I choose to embark this journey by your side?
It is not a hard question to answer,
but neither is it particularly easy.
Not because the words escape me –
but rather because I choose to live by what I say.
So when I say you are my home – I mean that:
In the good moments I will build a life with you,
and in the bad, I will protect you from the storms that try to break you.
In the easy times, we will enjoy the tides,
and in the hard times, I will come and hold you tight.
And when I say you are my best friend – I mean that:
In the happy adventures I will laugh with you,
and in the difficult moments, I will stay by your side.
In daily conversations, I will adorn you with kisses;
and in the daring conversations,
even though I may avert my eyes –
I will find my way back…
into your arms,
and the presence of your warm smile.
And when I say you are my past, present and future –
I mean that through what we have been through,
and through what we may –
I choose you.
Because you are my everyday.
