Loving you is like putting my feet in cool
water on a blistering day.
When the sun is sweltering and the world
might just suffocate me,
there you are,
running over me,
bringing relief in the humblest of ways.
Loving you is like having my heart explode. Too
full of feeling with nowhere to go
so it splatters the walls and comes out in songs
and makes my words flow like the
stream you are.
Darling, when I sit beside you
and hear the way the water moves,
Breath the way it tastes in the air,
remember the way it does not go dry,
I feel the world stop her spinning.
And in those times with you,
I know it will be ok.
