It’s difficult to love you the way I know you

It’s difficult to love you the way I know you
The shrug of the shoulders
The faraway distant smile, pretending to be mine
The look over my shoulders and the turn of the head
Every time you need to look at me and say “I do”

But its the only way I know you
I want to lie and say you’re here
Every minute, every moment when we are together
I want to hold onto those like pearls
Scared they will fall and scatter and never be found again

I promise myself on dark and lonely nights
Amidst tears and misgivings and fears
That i will never let you bring me down like this
You’re just another individual in this wide big world
And there will be someone else too

But every time the sun shines through
And mornings blur out the night that just passed
I love you again like my heart would burst
And hope that the soul would come together
Heal itself and walk again on that future we had dreamt to be
