Lovers Like Us
From the window the stars in the sky seem to mock me,
the walls in here are too close,
wanting in this night,
yearning for your arms,
craving your soul next to mine,
but lovers who hate goodbyes will always stay true…
Remembering your kiss,
the kind that can change from sweet to wild at any moment,
recalling your hands upon my skin,
a fire that is never fully quenched.
Lovers who yearn like this have no reason to leave…
Your voice from afar is calming,
and it’s almost like you’re with me.
We talk of our days spent apart and laugh at old times,
we flirt just like we did in the beginning.
You’re always in my thoughts.
I am utterly consumed by you,
in mind, body and soul.
Lovers who relate so well cannot be parted for long…
My heart hurts tonight,
needing you so much,
wanting you here beside me,
just to look in your eyes,
but I know if not tomorrow,
sometime soon I will see you again,
your hazel eyes will ground me,
your caress on my cheek will soothe,
your hard arms warming my body,
all of which I crave as I have no other.
I know that I’d wait forever if I had to,
but I’d wait.
Lovers who love like this are meant to be…
I need no assurances to know the truth of how I feel,
I don’t need the validation of another couple’s story in life or a book to know we are true,
though I love happy endings.
My heart knows best,
and this heart will wait.
For now I content myself with thoughts of you.
I still yearn but never in vain.
I trust you, and I trust us.
Lovers who feel this way will not stray…
For this is true love,
and lovers who feel like this,
lovers who need this way,
who feel so much,
Lovers like us will always,
always stay true.
