Finding The Woman I'm Meant To Be

Your Way

The way you make me coffee

And take the dogs outside

The way you wake me up

When you turn on our light

The way you give me shit

When I talk about my feelings

The way you resist

When I say to tell me sweet things


The way you tell me no

When I’m asking for too much

The way you calm my nerves

With just a single touch

The way you fall asleep

Even if I’m still talking

The way you say “what now”

When I ask how much you love me


The way you late night snack

When you think that I don’t notice

The way you change the subject

By pretending to lose focus

The way you tell a story

Without getting to the point

The way you don’t forget

To say “love you, goodnight”


The way you make me mad

But then you make me laugh

The way you buy me lobster

And end up eating half

The way you let me know

You’ll catch me when I fall

I love the way you love me

It’s my favorite love of all

Never Be

I will never be

A southern skinny blonde

I will never be

Too shy to say you’re wrong

I will never be

The woman without an opinion

I will never be

Dreaming without you in them

I will never be

Your first marriage choice

I will never be

Someone who’s been divorced

I will never be

The mother of your first child

I will never be

A heart that’s running wild

I will never be

Ok with no emotions

I will never be

The women that you’ve known

I will never be

Someone who leaves & deserts you

I will never be

Her.

My Heart’s Rhythm

I love you
I’m in love with you
I’m who I am
Because of you

I need you
I’m in need of you
My heart’s rhythm
Is to the beat of you

I trust you
I’m entrusting you
With my future
It’s me and you

I love you
I’m in love with you
I’m who I am
Because of you

Nothing Else

I don’t want to
Understand
Another soul

I don’t want
Another man’s
Hand to hold

I don’t need
Anything
More than this

I didn’t know
Chemistry before
Your kiss

I don’t want to
Start at
The beginning

I don’t want
To lose us
While we’re winning

I don’t need
Romance and
Butterflies

I didn’t know
True love
Until your eyes

I don’t want to
Be less than
You deserve

I don’t want
Ever after
Fairy tails

I don’t need
Fancy nights or
Jewelry

I didn’t know
We would be
Everything

I want to
Make you happy
Forever

I want this
You and me
Together

I need
Us to last
True and true

I know
What love is
Because of you

Two for One

I think God knew

I was full of love

So he gave me two

Instead of one

There’s no package deal

I’d rather have

Than this little man

And his dad

Failure of the Senses

I think

Before I speak

I feel

Before I see

I walk

Before I crawl

I jump

Before I fall

I dream

Before I live

I crash

Before I skid

I burn

Before I warm

I break

Before I’m worn

I think

Before I speak

I feel

Before I see

I jump

Before I leap

But please

Don’t give up on me.

Insecure Space

There’s a space in my mind

Where my insecurities lie

I keep them all inside

They taunt me sometimes

There’s a place in my soul

Where my insecurities go

They travel lonely roads

Where I’ve been before

There’s a space inside my heart

Where my insecurities start

They lay there in the dark

Trying to tear us apart

There’s a space in my mind

Where my insecurities lie

They say you’ll change your mind

And you’ll leave me behind

There’s a place inside my soul

Begging you not to go

Filled with sadness I have known

Without you I’m alone

There’s a part inside my heart

That’s fighting with my soul

And the insecurities of my mind

They’re tearing me up inside.

Roll Of The Dice

The love of my life

Sleeps in front of me

And I can’t help but think

“I’m so lucky”

All the years before

Were empty

And out of nowhere

He found me

I always thought

“I know what love means”

But everything I looked for

Was never as it seemed

Now the love of my life

Sleeps in front of me

And I can’t help but think

“I’m so lucky”.

Us

The inside jokes

The sideways grins

Knowing that

It’s just ‘our’ thing

Our lazy nights

And favorite foods

Knowing that

It’s me and you

Taking road trips

Planning date nights

Knowing that

It’s our time

You’re my bestie

As I am to you

Knowing that

My forever’s with you

It’s just ‘our’ thing

It’s me and you

It’s our time

You’re my dream come true.
