los banos, ca,
I lay weak beneath our innocence,
I challenge everything about you,
I play the games that cast away,
All the things you thought you knew.
I ask not for your apologies,
Of the past that haunts us both,
I want not of your eagerness,
That we choose not to show.
I have never taken more from you,
Than everything you have given,
I have always let you break me down,
Despite the life we live in.
I will always light your eyes,
With that childish gleam you posses,
I will never forsake our love,
For you have risen above the rest.
Although time has often weakened,
The truth that’s in your voice,
I need you now because I want to,
Not because I have no choice.
Times have changed us both,
Since the simple easy good-byes,
We’ve shared times unimaginable,
That I savor sweetly in my mind.
Laughter melts away,
The ice in any heart,
Reconstructs the broken lives,
That we forced to fall apart.
To my beloved here today-
I pray to god that forever you’ll stay.
Here in this silence that we have made-
My heart, and soul, are yours today.
