I’ve never cared about how much I lived until I knew this.
And now for every minute of knowing this, I want to know a thousand more.

You’re like an orgasm.
When I feel for you, every cell in my body vibrates with that feeling.

I remember what I felt when you first looked at me.
It felt like strawberries and cream.
It felt like a soft bed after a long day.
It felt like coming home after twenty years of being at war.

With the world.
With myself.
With love.

And then love looked me in the eye.
And I was taken.
I was yours.

That day.
The next day.
And a thousand more.

It’s entering another world.
Being in a different body.
Facing the ugly faces
The different sides of you
You didn’t know.

It’s deceiving.
One day it’s there
Feeding off of
And into you.
The next day
It’s nowhere to be seen.

Is an ally of comfort.
They’re symbiotic.
Both sworn enemies
Of courage.

The rogue that’s always
Conflicting interests,
Raining storms inside of you.
But the sun seldom shines.
Balance does not make
An appearance.

Only Buddha claims to have found her
And tied the knot.

I hope you never lose your sense of wonder
You get your fill to eat
But always keep that hunger
May you never take one single breath for granted
God forbid love ever leave you empty handed
I hope you still feel small
When you stand by the ocean
Whenever one door closes, I hope one more opens
Promise me you'll give faith a fighting chance
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
I hope you dance
I hope you dance
I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance
Never settle for the path of least resistance
Living might mean taking chances
But they're worth taking
Lovin' might be a mistake
But it's worth making
Don't let some hell bent heart
Leave you bitter
When you come close to selling out
Give the heavens above
More than just a passing glance
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
I hope you dance
