how you capture me tonight 

like magic that seems to not ever end. 

You travel to so many hearts and lives 

I wonder do you ever just get tired. 

You share with so many and some experiences last a lifetime 

where others only last a season or less. 

Do you cry for the love that does not work out or do you hope that one day things will turn around for the couple. 

Oh love as I hold you in my hands tonight I can’t stop but smile and enjoy this time I have with you. 

I wonder if I will learn anything new from you tonight or will I unlock the secrets that were always deep inside of me.

of you on this cold morning as I stand here 

my mind is full of sorrow of the times we had together and now there over. 

I know when I leave this spot and go back to the house we both used to call home 

you will be gone and the home I loved coming back to everyday will be empty and lonely.

I know that I have to leave this spot but I just can’t face what will come once I leave and so I stand out here just a little longer and hope maybe things will be different. 

If I come up with the right plan just maybe things will workout for us and this moment will just be temporary. 

I know that I am the key to your happiness and you are the key to mine when it comes to our love. 

I know this is the real thing and you are it for me so Our home my be just me for now but, soon you will be back and things will be better than before and I hope we stick this time and handle things differently from now on.

I thought

I was clever as I said those words to you.

I thought I knew what was needed to be said but, you prove me wrong and I’ll never forget that smile on your face.

All the small things from you became all the things that mattered.

Your sweetness was something I started to crave and I realized how lucky I was that day. 

You were truly special and different in your way and everyone else that came to play.

Didn’t have a chance to catch up to the strength and understanding you had.

You opened my heart and fixed all the pieces that were damaged and you opened your arms. 

And you never let me go even though sometimes I tried with all my might to push you away.

You never truly let me go even when I broke away one day.

For every time I looked around there you were and I could not ignore how I felt.

You are my sunrise, you light up my life in the morning and make every day a special occasion.

You are bright and some days you are different then the day before and even though your moods change I still love you so.

Your beautiful and amazing and even though some times I have to close my eyes when I first see you in the morning.

I know watching for the time that you are up and about is worth the little bit of sleep I missing out on.

My days with you are always days full of smiles and joy and laughter is never far behind either.

Days with you are the days I live for now and forever more.

His queen

I never thought one day I’d be someone’s queen and smile so brightly 

for this day is the best day of my life. 

To dress up in the most precious gown to me and feel so amazing that simple words can’t explain how I felt that day. 

You looked at me with so much love that I didn’t think I could receive and keep inside of me when times get tough and I need so badly to cling to that love. 

I know that you love me and that this picture will always be one of your favorites and I hope one day to capture one of me looking at you as you smile so brightly.

Smile captured my heart every time I see you doing something you love like playing on your guitar on your days off.

Or when you laugh at something that’s funny to you that laugh I could listen to all night if I have too.

There is so much joy and light inside of you that spending time with you always puts me in a good mood.

You tell me to follow my dreams for you see so much potential in me and you know that only over time will I keep growing the gift that I was blessed with.

You smile at me and laugh when I’m being so stubborn and you know that if I just let go and ask for help things would be so much more simpler for me.

You are one lucky person I tell you all the time because you get to know me and you laugh because you know I’m right and yet you just won’t admit it.

For me being right would just grow my already big head.

me play you a song because I heard you were really into music and love original songs.

So here I go to the girl in the front row that stole my heart the moment our eyes meant that night six months ago.

As you song and played your guitar to the song you dedicated to me, I couldn’t stop crying and smiling to the sweet lyric you wrote about me and our love story.

I knew that everything that we had been through was worth working out and that or future was brighter than I thought it could possibly be.

I had so much hope that we would work out because of that day changed me and opened my eyes to a side of you I didn’t know existed.

I fell in love with you more that night and that song became my favorite song of all time and I still play it now and then when you don’t personally sing it to me.

We made it so much farther than maybe we would have if you hadn’t written that song and laid it all out for me that day.

Because, before that night it was so hard to get you to spill how you felt without you closing up and the conversion always ending before I got all my answers from you.
