~You ARE My Way~


Silently, I watch you.
While sleeping
I watch your every
subtle movement.
Knowing not when to speak
or even
speak at all.
Shall I wait for thee
to utter word?
Shall I hold my tongue
'till then?

I thought I knew...
what made this warrior heart.
The wind, the water,
the earth,
but now I see...
these things don't make me.
can't make me
What makes me is you...
you make me laugh,
and cry.
You make me see
and hear.
But most of all you make me;
I know these words
in my head hold true
for when you are in absence
I can't seem to find it,
I can't seem to find
