Riding the Waves

When I think
I think of you

And all of the
Romance too

I talk too much
So I’ll make this fast

I want to be yours
And I want to outlast

Any broken promises
That came before

Or relationships that died
Because “they” were bored

I’m willing to fight
To be yours

Like a rogue wave
I’ll push through the pain

Trade blows with spacetime
Until it falls and I’ve won

I’ll set on oceans to talk to you
Sailing through hurricanes

I want to outlast all the doubts
And I want to be better every day

Because I know you deserve
The best that I can be

Let me be

I want to be your world
Grey maps unfurl

And get filled in with color
As we explore coastlines

After storms pass
And we can admire

What new places we’ve found
And hearts grown with the voyage

I want to find a new world with you
Where we aren’t afraid

I want to give you gifts
Of the things I’ve made

Every love letter of English
I’ve written in your name

Let the coastlines we find
Be writ with these lines
