With Everything I Have

What would I do without your smart mouth?
Drawing me in, and you kicking me out
You’ve got my head spinning, no kidding, I can’t pin you down
What’s going on in that beautiful mind

I keep thinking about holding your hand. All those moments when you would squeeze my hand when you were scared or nervous. Silently I willed it to lend you my strength. Whenever you were unsure or frightened; I willed it. I willed it to give all my strength (or my bullheaded determination to be more accurate) through the delicate touch of our skin.

You’re my end and my beginning

I was always your source of strength and you were mine. We shared everything with each other.

Until we didn’t.

I know that you feel you have to do this. 

Matters not how things unveiled. Matters not who says what. Matters not how I feel. I steadfastly refuse to believe you are anything but the same wondrously kind hearted and loving person I know you to be in my heart of hearts. Even if that kindness and love doesn’t extend to me today.

Love your curves and all your edges
All your perfect imperfections

I came across some words that really seem appropriate for me in this moment. Those words are far more eloquent than anything I could hope to scribble off.

Those words are as follow, “You must love someone enough to trust their wishes, even if you disagree with them. You must respect her — no matter how wrong you think she may be, no matter how poor you think her decisions, you must respect her desire to make them. Even if one of them includes loving you.”

Or even if one of them includes not loving you.

How many times do I have to tell you
Even when you’re crying you’re beautiful too
The world is beating you down, I’m around through every mood
You’re my downfall, you’re my muse
My worst distraction, my rhythm and blues
I can’t stop singing, it’s ringing, in my head for you

I respect your wishes. Even if I don’t agree with them. Because I respect you and I love you more than anyone will ever know. (Yes, more than even you will ever know my heart) There is nothing that I wouldn’t do to make you happy, with everything I have.

So smile my heart and please, please be happy.

Because I give you all of me.

‘Cause all of me
Loves all of you
Love your curves and all your edges
All your perfect imperfections
Give your all to me
I’ll give my all to you
You’re my end and my beginning
Even when I lose I’m winning
‘Cause I give you all of me
