I Live

For the night I fall asleep and awake with you on my mind
For the remnants of our first kiss on my lips
For the seconds minutes and hours
I hold you in my arms

I Live

For the moment, we intently look into each others’ eyes
Knowing it is the end of you and I

and the beginning of us.

I Live

Not for a love that lives infinitely through reprinted books
and faded words
But for a love that will transcend generations through
love filled whispers

I Live
For the chance to love you.
