You read a letter you weren’t supposed to see.
You declared something that changed everything.
I declared something that changed everything.
You fought to make sense of it all.
I fought against us and reason.
You told me to forget.
I told you I loved you.
You said you loved me.
You said you wanted and needed me.
I confessed it too.
You are still here.
I said I’m hoping and waiting.
You said you will wait.
Then you said to forget.
I said I’ll never forget.
I said I’m in love with you.
Silence filled the portals of your heart.
Going around the corner of the past
You watched over me through the years.
I was completely oblivious.
I told you the truth
That I fell in love softly
Through a letter
That was never intended for you to read.
You responded in letters
Still thinking about a letter you weren’t supposed to read.
You said you loved me too.
I believed you.
You said to forget if there were ever a chance to be together.
I held on to faith.
You pointed up.
I looked up at those stars wishing, longing, and hoping
That you would find me again with each passing letter.
Don’t give up my love.
Don’t feel that I don’t love you.
I will try to do as you say.
If you promise me you will find me.
If you promise you will still love me.
I will do you the favor you asked me.
I love you more than you will ever know.
I will wait for you.
In each letter that I write
May it be a constant reminder to you
I hope that I will always love you.
You belong here with me.
I belong in your arms.
We belong together.
You know that.
I know that.
Just time, distance, and circumstances aren’t on our side
We’ll be together.
But for now…
We both have to forget
That you read a letter you weren’t supposed to see
And I fell in love with you.
You said it’s a disaster waiting to happen.
You fight reason and to make sense of it all.
I do too.
You search for a definition to what we are.
We chose not to be lovers.
We chose to be friends,
But that cannot be either,
Because we are so much more.
What are we?
It’s a question that time and patience
And forgetting will lay out for both of us.
It’s not what I want.
I want you now.
You want me now.
We want each other.
But we must wait
to see how our story unfolds.
Through all of this story,
Know that I still and will always love you.
There isn’t a morning that isn’t lived for you.
There isn’t a thought that isn’t for you.
There isn’t a song that is sung that isn’t for you.
It’s all for you.
I’ll respect your request.
I’ll try to forget.
But ask me to stop loving you?
It could never be.
No matter what.
I’ll always be here for you if you need me
With a letter that clearly you are supposed to read.
