August 16th

August 16th is the day you changed my life, from my past you covered my misery and strife, you told me although I can't make up for your past, but know that the man I am I can fight to make it last, I'm not here to damage you no more than you already have, but in your darkest days I want to be that special one who can make you laugh, for tomorrow is not promised, and this second isn't either, if you just trust in me and I trust in you we 2 can become 2 heavy weight fighters, when you told me you love me, I said that everything will be alright i knew it was real when you hugged me just so damn tight, as our lips intertwined I knew then it was a charm, you told me you would protect me from any and all harm. I thank you for being the man of my dreams, and together I see our love running like a big football team, this isn't a coincidence, but it's just such great timing, in all actuality you have me unwinding, your presence I know is a gift from heaven, God said he will love us 70x7. Youve always gave me such good advice, while your gone away from me I'm shortened just by a little spice, but that don't mean nothing because your love is internal with me, just hold on while i sit and sip my tea, for life throws us curve balls left and right, I'm not giving up this relationship so I hope they can fight, because I'm in this thang together giving it all my might, I love you and nothing will be able to take it back, I carry you in my heart just like a precious little sack.
