It was the first time you didn’t fall for my smile,
the one you realized wasn’t real.
You took me home and tugged me in,
You kissed my forehead and held my hand.
I fell asleep crying.
I woke up and you were still there,
No answers to the burning questions in your eyes.
You didn’t push,
You simply waited it out.
That’s when I knew you were the one.
The day my fake smile didn’t fool you,
and my raw tears didn’t chase you.
The unanswered questions never scared you,
you stayed anyway.
There was something bigger that kept you there that day,
It had to be because no one else made it that far.
Not even I could come to understand the chaos of my being.
People always wanted more,
somehow you knew I gave all I had
And that was enough for you to stay.
Because all you ever asked for was my everything
Even if it was less than everyone else’s something.
