ONE LOVE

Love is like a bunch of grapes,

Held together by a thin vine,

A vine built on respect,

A vine built on trust,

A vine built on a mutual bond,

A vine that can be easily broken.

 

Love is like an addiction,

Something that is deeply craved,

Something that is sought after for a long time,

Something that can be unhealthy and ruin you,

Something that can be healthy and make you into a new person.

 

So because you love me, 

Now I feel anew,

Because you love me ,

I feel like I am fresh from my mother’s womb.

 

Because you love me,

My heart is full of sparks,

Because you love me,

My heart feels like a 4th of July parade.

 

Because you love me, 

I am no longer filled with hate,

Because you love me 

I am no longer filled with pointless rage.

 

Because you love me, 

I am happier and glowing,

Because you love me ,

I feel like I am consumed with the rays of the sun.

 

Because you love me ,

I want to do the best,

Because you love me, 

I now see the meaning of love.

 

Because you love me, 

I feel eternal happiness,

Because you love me ,

I am no longer lost but found.

 

I now know the meaning of real relationships,

Having had a hurtful past full of mostly downs and never ups,

I had given up on love and settled with the thought that I could never find someone to love me for who I am,

But you changed that and I cannot compare this feeling to anything else.

 

So because I love you, 

I will do what it takes,

To keep you safe and to keep you warm,

To keep you close and to keep you by my side.

 

Because I love you ,

I will reassure you of my constant love,

Because I love you, 

I will support you in all your endeavors.

 

Because I love you, 

I cherish all the happy moments we have had and are yet to have.

Because I love you ,

I want to spend eternity with you.

 

I love you for loving me despite my constant flaws.
