You sat by the phone all the times I couldn’t,
And that’s what made you extraordinary.
There are only so many moments when
All the words well up underneath my soul,
Pushed down by the gravity of “supposed to be”, “isn’t”,
And a lot of the time I find myself stuck there,
Trying to decode all the wants that factor in–
But, you see, I know with my entire being that
I love you more than that day we watched the rain fall,
And how in the world could I love anything more than that?
