I want to be

 I want to be

Hey Baby, I just wanted to leave a note so
you would know how much you mean to me,
and even though I know we had not seen
each other in a couple of years. We always
wrote to each other, keeping up with one
another always fanning a spark that is now
a fire and love is always a gamble, but with
you, I will place that bet even though it may
be way too early for some. I have already.
fallen deeply in love with you again, so now
I want to be that memory when you are all
alone, you know, the one that makes you
smile when you hear your favorite song,
that one you roll the window down to when
the sun comes out to warm your heart and
soul on a cold winter's day, I want to be the
memory that you think about when you and
all your friends are out, wondering why you
have those sparkles in your eyes and that
grin on your face when you remembered
the lake. I want to be the one you feel when
you are all alone in bed at night. Who makes
you feel all right with just the scent of
me still lingering in the air from that special
night that you and I held on tight until the sun
came up when the daylight found us making
love, then I want to be sitting there next to you
holding hands at that beach with a fire roaring
on a blanket just as the nighttime comes,
looking up at all the stars up in the skies
looking a lot like fireflies sparkling in your
beautiful eyes when we turn gray, thinking
back about when we were young and then
the day we met it made me so thrilled that
I won that bet just as they caught us by the
rising sun holding on to one another while
We are making love all over again. and then
a smile spreads across my face, remembering
that day when my phone rang and I could
hear your voice asking me to marry you
and without a breath, I said yes yes yes
because baby, not only are you a dream,
come true you are the best muse I have
ever had I have missed you, as I still do
counting down the days until we wed and
I place that ring upon your finger with
both of us knowing it means forever,

I Love You
