You have a way

Folder: 
My husband

You have a way of lifting me higher than cloud 9,
of making the darkest night brighter,
the moon overhead like a teardrop in the sky.

You have a way of making me whisper all of my secrets,
share all of my fears and fight all of my demons,
of keeping me without chains.

You have a way of singing me to sleep,
without saying a word.

You have a way of making me fear the shadows,
of making me want to belong in the light,
of making me want to risk everything I've ever known.

You have a way of soothing me into peaceful bliss,
not used to feeling quite like this.

You have a way of making me open up,
say so much more than I ever meant to say,
of seeing into my heart and soul.

When fear threatens to claim me,
you have a way of reassuring me that it's all going to be okay.

When the sky thunders overhead,
clouds begin to bleed to gray,
you shelter me, that's just your way.

You have a way of getting under my skin,
spinning around my head like wheels on a car,
can't get you out, don't even want to.

You have a way of making everything seem colder when I'm alone,
but then you make me warm again,
and I never want to turn from your flame.

You have a way of making me speechless,
of making me want to cry a tear of happiness,
no one's ever affected me this way.

You have a way of holding onto me when I want run and stay alone,
then want to come back home.

You have a way of making me dance to your song,
you just watch, can't imagine life without you now.

For so long I was content in the dark,
it managed to break me, it was where I belonged,
you have a way of making me crave the light.

For so long I never saw myself as beautiful,
never thought I could find my own light,
now I see what everyone else sees,
you have a way of getting through to me.

Was lost for so long, holding onto decayed dreams,
then when I let go, I saw your face,
you have a way of finding me when I want to stay gone.

You have a way of making me want a future,
hope for the promise of tomorrow,
no longer going through the motions,
you make the possibilities more exciting.

Love having you to support me,
of feeling your love carrying me,
I've found my path, the one that leads to you.

I understand the dark and light,
wanted to find a balance somewhere in between,
you have a way of making me believe I can.

Wanted to learn to stand, whether in the shadow or sun,
to find my inner beauty, a battle I've never had the strength to fight.

When I gave up on everything, closed my heart,
stopped trusting, you found a way in,
you have a way of breaking through all my walls.

I miss you more than I did yesterday,
love you more than last week,
because the truth is, you have a way with me.
