Unconditional



I did not expect you.
I thought it was over.
No longer my lover.
No longer my friend.
No longer my soul mate.
No longer the same.
But the candle still lives, and it burns as it gives;
Happy made me, the smile you gave me.
I've realized the missing,
I wish we were kissing;
I adore you, you're my fire.
Your love is my desire.
Embrace me while I'm near,
Don't forget me while I'm gone,
Don't forget about tomorrow,
Don't regret it when it's done.
Be as close as your lips,
Be as warm as your body;
The depth in your eyes,
The image of your soul;
So unreal to explain,
So real to it's name;
Unconditional love.
