I know there are lots of reasons why we shouldn't.
But this connection between us just can't be ignored.
You move me in ways that I just can't describe.
You've opened a part of my heart that
No one has ever touched before.
Your beauty both inside and outside
Reminds me just how lovely life can truly be.
I know how much you care about me.
You cheer my even my smallest successes
And sooth my ego even when I make my biggest mistakes.
You are always in my corner.
I hope that, in some small way, I will always be part of your life.
I'll be that thought in your head that causes a little, silly smile.
I'll be that thought the causes a warm feeling of tenderness or strength
I'll be there for that kind word or hug that lifts you from a moment of sadness.
So even though we probably shouldn't,
Let's take the time to just kiss the day away.
To forget about what we should or shouldn't do
Just take the time
To sit in a field of buttercups and smell the fresh blooms of spring
To stare at the clouds billowing in the clear blue summer sky
To listen to the waterfall in the distance as the fall leaves tumble
To caress the purring kitten curling up in your embrace next to the winter fire
So even though we shouldn't, lets dare to be together
To be there for each other
Always and forever.
