Turning Page..........

I've waited a hundred years,
but i'd wait a million more for you.
Nothing prepared me for
what the privilege of being yours would do.

If I had only felt the warmth of your touch,
If I had only seen how you smile when you blush.
Or how you curl your lip when you concentrate enough.
I would have known what I was living for all along.
What I've been living for.

Your love is my turning page,
where only the sweetest words remain. 
Every kiss is a cursive line,
every touch is a redefining phrase.

I surrender who i've been for who you are, 
for nothing makes me stronger than your fragile heart.
If I had only felt how it feels to be yours,
well, I would have known what i've been living for all along. 
What i've been living for.

Though we're tethered to the story we must tell,
when I saw you, well, I knew we'd tell it well.
With a whisper, we will tame the vicious seas,
like a feather bringing Kingdoms to their knees.

  7. I have been searching for weeks for a poem that would express how I feel about my darling husband. This morning I open my email and there it is waiting for me!
    Thank you for sharing this beautiful song and lyrics.

    I have written it in my Valentine's day card for my darling husband of 12 years. The past 12 years have been what these words say.

This is a beautiful written song the lyrics are lovely, my daughter just loves anything to do with the Twilight Saga she read the books and went to all the movie premiers, so I'm sure she knows this song, but as for me this is the first I've heard it, so thank you Vanessa for sharing... it's got me wanting to borrow my daughters Twilight DVDs collection to watch :)
