It’s getting harder
This life of ours.
We have been swept up in this storm for so long
Carried along at break neck speed from day-to-day
Month to month
Year to year
Given no time to second guess what’s coming.
No time to take a moment.
Take stock of what’s going on
To just be, still.
A stark realisation we are chasing time is taking it out of you
There is no sign of let up
There will be no winners post.
We know this will never get easier
No matter how much we want it to
How much we might dream.
We are tired.
This is not the life we had planned
No one imagines this kind of shit
No one expects it to happen to them.
I want you to know
Need you to know.
Even if from the beginning
From the very moment I met you
We knew this was planned for you
I would still choose you.
I would choose you every time.
You showed me what it is really like to stand in the light
You have made me a better person
You lifted me up and encouraged me to soar
Without you I would never have known what true happiness is
What it feels like to be loved without conditions.
You give me the confidence to be the best version of myself
You make me want to take on the world
Change it for the better
Although I’m not quite sure how yet.
You give me the strength to carry on
My favourite moments have been with you
With you by my side.
My favourite memories have you in them
Time spent with you.
You have given me the 2 most amazing (most of the time) loving children.
No one makes me laugh like you do.
Even when I’ve not quite liked you, lets face it sometimes you can be a bit of a knob, I have always loved you
I would live our lives over and over
Even knowing the hardships and heartbreak
I would choose you every time
Until the end of time
