My “One and Only”

You’ve been on my mind
I grow fonder every day
Lose myself in time
Just thinking of your face
God only knows why it’s taken me
So long to let my doubts go
You’re the only one that I want

I don’t know why I’m scared
I’ve been here before
Every feeling, every word
I’ve imagined it all
You’ll never know if you never try
To forget your past and simply be mine

I dare you to let me be your, your one and only
I promise I’m worthy
To hold in your arms
So come on and give me the chance
To prove I am the one who can walk that mile
Until the end starts

If I’ve been on your mind
You hang on every word I say
Lose yourself in time
At the mention of my name
Will I ever know how it feels to hold you close
And have you tell me
Whichever road I choose, you’ll go?

I don’t know why I’m scared
‘Cause I’ve been here before
Every feeling, every word
I’ve imagined it all
You’ll never know if you never try
To forget your past and simply be mine

I dare you to let me be your, your one and only
I promise I’m worthy, mm
To hold in your arms
So come on and give me the chance
To prove I am the one who can walk that mile
Until the end starts

I know it ain’t easy giving up your heart
I know it ain’t easy giving up your heart
Nobody’s perfect
(I know it ain’t easy giving up your heart)
Trust me I’ve learned it
Nobody’s perfect
(I know it ain’t easy giving up your heart)
Trust me I’ve learned it
Nobody’s perfect
(I know it ain’t easy giving up your heart)
Trust me I’ve learned it
Nobody’s perfect
(I know it ain’t easy giving up your heart)
Trust me I’ve learned it

So I dare you to let me be your, your one and only
I promise I’m worthy
To hold in your arms
So come on and give me the chance
To prove that I am the, one who can walk that mile
Until the end starts

Come on and give me the chance
To prove that I am the one who can, walk that mile
Until the end starts

I know you’re asking and hoping I can forgive the last two months. I know I got tired of repetitive steps backwards AFTER you had made so much progress. It took so little for spats (between you and me or you and your loved ones) to spiral you out of a happy place and I felt unable, no, I didn’t have permission for my own shit to erupt without you again making ultimatums. The pressure to stay put together had its toll and when my coping mechanisms required support from MY network, you made it very clear what choice I had to make because you didn’t trust me to hold your secrets. I’ve been fortunate to come into my own person at a young age but that didn’t make some of the discoveries any easier. From family, friends and eventually mentors, I made calls that I promised myself to live by and never falter, never step back. I’ve doubted some of those decisions and I have my regrets and the ONLY solace I have is knowing that I did right by me. If my choices came to making life-changing, life-ending for someone other than myself, I chose the lesser of two evils. That’s how I knew I’d never leave the US permanently and we’d part ways should the time come that you made the right decision for you. I never begrudge people the right to choose selfishly for themselves or the chance to go back and fix a mistake. What is the deal breaker is being wishy-washy. I can do without a lot in this world, but a person of strong and unflinching character is someone I cannot do without for a partner.
