I know it's only been so long,

And I know it's hard to believe.

I know I'm not always perfect,

Though I try hard to be.

I know life has been cruel,

Which makes the good seem fantasy.

I know the world is hard on you,

And I know what a burden the past can be.

I know it seems as though,

The world has forsaken you.

And I know that things,

Will never be what they used to.

I know you can't change the past,

And I know the future is unclear.

I don't know what to expect from it,

But here's what else I know, my dear.

I know that there is no one,

I'd rather be with than you.

I know you chase the clouds away,

Whenever I'm feeling blue.

I know you're not perfect,

But I know that you also try.

I know I want to be there,

To dry the tears you cry.

I know that life is wasted,

By many stupid fools.

And I know I don't wanna waste any time,

I just wanna be in love with you.

NOTE: Poem for the man I love, who puts up with my crap for some strange reason. ;)
