If ever there was anything more beautiful than life
It would never exist.
If ever there was anyone more beautiful than you
They would be a liar.
If ever there was a dream that was more real than us
It would be insane.
You make my wings grow out of my back
And you make me soar above the skies
To places unknown that I never thought existed.
If ever there was a poem truer than this
It would never be.
The only truth I know to be,
That pumps oxygen into my being
Is that you and I are born from love.
That no one can ever strip away from our very souls.
