Sometimes I wake up to a cold heart
A lonely soul
As time flies
I listen to the sweet and serene cry of nature,
The songs of birds in love,
As I lay alone in my bed.
Memories of you flirt with my soul
Thinking of you crashes my mind
I am in the state of sweet surrender,
I am a prisoner held captive by your love,
Your smile, your laugh, your touch,
Please take me home.
Take me to where your heart finds rest,
Take me as I am, a drunkard of emotion and feelings.
Let me be that one,
The one who gets to greet you err morning
And kiss you err night,
The one you get to call lover-boy,
For I am crazy when I’m with you,
And I want to stay that way.
But boy will he, will he every passing day
Be the one to fill that role,
Be the one that wants me to call him these names
Will you give in to my attentions, teases and endearments
That days past I’ve been already calling you in my head
I want to wake up to your touch
Go through hours and nights knowing
Most of your smiles
Are mine and mine alone
Boy, do I wanna call you lover boy, baby, bae
All those cliché things we laughed at
During all those late-night conversations
When we were nothing more than friends
Now that we’re trying to be something more
Oh yes everyone finds our attempts and struggles cray
But you get it, you get me
Maybe because it’s a kind of “us” typa life now
I think of you when there’s something new to tell,
To laugh at, to get depressed over
I think of you when there’s nothing left to think
So maybe there’s nothing to question on this
Maybe there’s no what ifs and what nots on this page of our lives
Let’s just grab our scrolls, turn the leaf over and have you writing with me
Aww but the things you do unto me,
I can swear you render me speechless,
I have crafted words just for you,
Master of my art just to please you.
And since you feel the same way about me,
I will make no promises for they can be broken
I will make a vow,
Not even death will do us part.
But this, I want to do when on one knee,
Looking into those golden beautiful eyes,
I want to see your colour fade when I pop the ring,
I want to see the smile on your face form,
A developing blush and acceptable smirk.
As I give you the ring around which my heart is wound.
Then, I will take you places,
As you call me those cliché things we laughed about,
I will call you bae, angel, my cupcake.
Through hours, I intend to smile at all your smiles,
I look forward to sleepless nights and endless tales,
Crazy laughs and many memories,
And such will be us,
Crazy as we are, nothing can hold us now,
Only if you say the word.
And if by word you refer to the “yes”,
Then darling that I’ve already said
Countless, inconceivable times I have acquiesced
My body, my soul, my mind especially
All are yours, for you to please
To take to places imaginary and real
To swing through dances for us and for the world to see
A vow, we could write and recite
But our hearts, that’s where our promises are written
In ink indelible for us to read
On our fingertips and on our lips
Words tattooed for our eyes only
For such are phrases that only we crave
And for that, I’m ready
Take upon it as you see fit
For memories are already in progress,
And words, well words outspoken are only for formality.
