The One



I need to meet eyes with you
in a crowd
I am lost without you
without your grace

I need to hold hands 
I fear losing the feel
of your touch

I need to take care of you
you polish my compassion

I want to brighten your world
I want to paint it red
and blue
for your happiness

I could steal the stars
But they dont shine 
as the sun does
My sun, being you

I want to be your anchor
I want to be your cane
I want to be your breath
Invisible, but right there

I could say be with me
It doesnt justify my feelings
I could say marry me
oh please
spend your life with me
but
I don't want to be the one
I'm content just being your someone

for a moment, a minute 
or an hour
I'll take your hand each time
like it was my last
