If Ever…

If ever there was anything more beautiful than life

It would never exist.

If ever there was anyone more beautiful than you

They would be a liar.

If ever there was a dream that was more real than us

It would be insane.

You make my wings grow out of my back

And you make me soar above the skies

To places unknown that I never thought existed.

If ever there was a poem truer than this

It would never be.

The only truth I know to be,

That pumps oxygen into my being

Is that you and I are born from love.

That no one can ever strip away from our very souls.

difficult love big
