POEM| Only You

Its been you
Only you

When I wake up in the morning
and I see the light
When I go to bed at night
and darkness surrounds me

I think of you
Only you

When the stars are missing
and the sky is at its darkest
When the rain is pouring
and its sound is deafening 

I long for you
Only you

When I hear good news
and I’m leaping with joy
When things aren’t going well
and I’m crushing inside

I look for you
Only you

When my mind wanders
and I can’t tame my heavy heart
When the world feels small

and I wonder if I belong here

I remember you
Only you

It has always been you
It will always be you
Only you

Did you think of someone special while reading this?
