i love the way you smile to me
how you make my body tremble
i love the way your lips touch mine
and before us, the stars assemble
i hate it when i run to you
after every tiny mishap
the way you wrap your arms around me,
kiss my forehead, and hold me in your lap
i love the fact that i can trust you
and even more that you make me strong
though i hate that i am needing you
when journeys are hurtful and long
