Before I met you, my love,
My nights were filled with horror.
Sleepless they were,
For I stayed up late, and my nightmares, they were abate.
I stayed up long - 'til moonlight shone through the windows.
To escape my fears, I just needed to pass time.
I played my heart by the distraction of games
On my phone, I just dawdled.
'Til my eyes could no longer flutter, and my mouth could no longer mutter.
'Til my nerves betrayed me, making the phone fall from my hands.
With it, just as I had planned, time passed like sand.
My eyelids grew weak, and my breath levelled in lonely nights I could no longer fathom.
In the end, when all hope seemed lost, you came like a mantra and flipped my whole world upside down.
Flipped my world into the fiery pits of love.
With the warmth of you beside me, I could finally get some rest.
So thank you, my love, for doing your best.
I'll love you forever, without any rest.
