I plan to create a place for myself
Not only in your heart
But also in your mind.
For I’m not a shadow that will hide
In a used vacated space.
I wanted to be seen and loved
For what I really am
Instead of stepping and molding myself
In the shoes left by someone else.
Living in an illusion as a rebound
Is not part of who or what I am.
For I know,
I’m much more than that.
One way for me to avoid
Becoming like that, my love,
Is by understanding & accepting
Your great connection to someone else
Before we even met.
It is the first liberating step I have to take
For that is something I can never change.
Anyways, I will love you no matter what.
I will nurture the love
I’ve sown inside your heart
And watch it thrive in your care,
For that’s only fair.
So the negative thoughts
That somehow crossed my mind
From time to time just dissipates.
It evanesce in thin air whenever
I remember the promise you’ve declared.
So there’s nothing left for me to despair,
I know I have your love
And my love is infinite –
Stronger than a legionnaire.
