Into Forever

We'd never been that close 
So I didn't know why I kept finding
Pieces of you in the back of my mind and
It drove me crazy
But one day we met again

It was my darkest hour and when no one else
Was here
You were
I was drowning in this ocean and I had to
Turn to you 

The walls came tumbling down
And I showed you the secret parts
Of my soul that no one else
Had ever seen

I was open, like a wound
I had to trust you like I'd never trusted
Anyone else
You weren't the one I'd have chosen

But you were the only one who was here
So I told you my secrets and I
Closed my eyes and waited for you to
Push me away

But you aren't that type
You aren't that type at all
Leaning close you whispered in my ear
That it will be okay and you
Promised that
If I asked
You would never leave me

And my eyes opened to a face
I'd never seen before
I saw you in a different way
And I knew you were
The only one for me

For the rest of my life
When I'm lost in the driving rain
I cling to the sound of your voice
And when I'm sad and sinking
Your contagious laugh draws me to the surface

You look at me with a look in your eyes
Like no one ever has before
Like you cannot go into forever
Without me by your side

I didn't know someone like you
I don't want this moment to ever end
Make time stand forever still 

I dreamed last night and I thought it was real
When I woke I was afraid you were gone
But here you were 
Beside me where you said you'd always stay

      Hey, that's okay... When I opened up my email and saw all the comments you'd left on here, I just got this huge grin. You made my day. :)
