You’re the one I was waiting for
At that moment, all I wanted to do was look into your eyes and enjoy the peace that comes when the war is over. No more games, no more battles - I can rest knowing that I got my happily-ever-after.
Walking through the door to my happiness felt like finding that one door with the neon sign that says “come, the time has come to claim your prize”. Oh, and what a prize you are! You’re the one I was waiting for, an honest, loving, caring, responsible man. Please forgive me for doubting you, heartbreak does that to a person.
Sometimes I can’t help wondering whether it’s too good to be true… It must be a trap, right? Where’s the small print? When will you fail me? But that’s not you. I’d seen the woman you made me in my dreams… I found her beautiful: a woman in love, a woman who gives her all. And I desperately wanted to be her… But my fear of being used and taken advantage of kept me from going there. I was so used to wearing a mask and pretending to be someone else - a cool girl, a tough girl, a girl that cannot be hurt.
I was just staring into your eyes hoping to tell you without words how glad I was to see you. You let me live life at my own pace, you don’t force my hand or hold me back, but you always make sure I can get to you and find rest in your arms.
You’re my safe haven, my anchor, you’re the one I was waiting for. Your arms feel like home and my favorite thing is listening to the sound of your heartbeat as I watch the morning light dances on our bedroom wall. When I’m with you I experience this inexplicable peace that makes me want to leave all my emotional baggage at the door and never worry about it ever again. You filled that my black and white movie of mine with colors and my heart is now full.
You’re my safe haven, my anchor, you’re the one I was waiting for. Your arms feel like home and my favorite thing is listening to the sound of your heartbeat as I watch the morning light dances on our bedroom wall.
You’re so gentle and you take care of everything in our life. You’re the one I was waiting for. You love me when I’m hard to love, when I’m struggling to open up and you’re the one I can always come back to and I know you’d never leave me hanging. Love is what we need, I don’t need any self-defence mechanism to keep me safe, I can lay down my arms and let the fairies of commitment clothe me in white. I knew the day would come when I can say, in all honesty, that you’re the one I was waiting for. And you’re enough, a thousand times enough.
