Love of My Life
They say you don’t know what you got till it’s gone
So that’s why I keep holding on
Because without you in my life
I can only imagine my world would collapse
And that would only cause my heart to relapse.
I could write books about the pain I went through
But it wouldn’t even come close if I were to lose you.
So how about we start making promises to each other
The first one could be that we’d always be together.
Not in the sense that we have to be face to face
But just a reassurance that no one would ever take your place.
I promise to do my best to always make you smile
Because if you’re not happy, then neither am I
Now that our souls are combined
Every step of the way, I’m right behind
And I promise to give you my all…
All that I am is just another part of you
Because everything I was looking for I found in you
I owe this life to you
You’re the air that I breathe that helps me through
Throughout the day you stay on my mind
Images of your beautiful face help me get by
After all these years, you were always the one
Even though it was hard, it was worth every step…
All the late night calls, and the tears I cried
I knew at the end of it, I’d end up smiling
And you’d end up mine…
And together, we’ll live out the rest of our lives
Because you will always be the love of my life
