Just wanna be with you

November 22, 2008

valentine-heart

as the rains continue to batter,
standing on the balcony
i watch the rain drops
converge into one pool of water;

i wish you were here
standing next to me
in this rain soaked night,
holding hands, scheming of things pretty;

Wondering to myself, so late at night,
what is it that attracts me to you?
Thinking to myself, why are you always on my mind?
What power do you have in what you do?

thinking about where i stood,
i try to push you out of my mind,
but every time i push you out of my thoughts,
you crawl back into my world and fill my senses;

it’s so hard to keep smiling
and continue denying what i feel
i don’t know why,
a thousand reasons i have none;

i can’t go on like this,
i can’t pretend everything is fine,
when i just wanna be with you 
hold you tight tonight and every night;

The simple lack of her is more to me than others’ presence.  ~Edward Thomas

[W]hen you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.  ~Nora Ephron, When Harry Met Sally

If I had a single flower for every time I think about you, I could walk forever in my garden.  ~Claudia Ghandi

If you press me to say why I loved him, I can say no more than because he was he, and I was I.  ~Michel de Montaigne
