darling, love me do.
you promised to look after me, my heart, my soul you keep,
you watch over me, gently stroke my hair, envelope protect my soul as I sleep
and in wonderment I feel relaxed enough to release thy demons of starvation
comfortable to freely eat
junk food I can see, I can hold, taste, see, feel without disdain,
without aggravation, it’s as though we were from yesterday

remember those times we enjoyed those laughs,
when we were wide eyed and smiling.
like two gangly giraffes?

My love, love, my wide eyed hope, allow me to provide the scope, I stared at you, and then I realised,
I suddenly would know,

you are the One. No other man would stay with me these tense terse hours, emergency department, demands shot, barked, fired. You know, you understand me, you are my hidden key, I have realised ever so slowly. That you’re the one for me. Forever be with me.
