Her smile lights up rooms
tenderness hidden behind layers of protection
she was mine
once
I was careless with our love
as a child who’d never learned
once
that smile was feet from me
I like to think I was the reason for it
sometimes
Separate paths once again
we walk
that smile
I’ll never forget
How butterflies were common
because of her
once

Nights like these

It’s nights like these
that make me hopeful
it’s nights like these
that help me forget
it’s nights like these
where kisses mean so much
it’s nights like these
I need your touch
it’s nights like these
where hope grows
where once was apathy
it’s nights like these
it’s nights
like these

More than Life

First

I’ve come a long way
stumbled for many years
yet you were out there
yet I was here

the mornings when you’re next to me
leave me in awe
of that amazing smile
those eyes I can’t resist staring

I don’t want to be without you
like I was before
like I was when I stumbled
yet you are out there

yet I am here

Easy on me
