I would wear your confidence on my skin
to hide my pain within
because you although wearing scars of your past
wear them so much braver
so much time later.
I wonder whether the paint you use will ever dry
as it drips
from your pages to this
Happily, I hold close every word between your lips.
Your pages although still unfinished
have been a pleasure to read
and every memory we have made
will be a pleasure to keep.
Forever written in my heart for all to find
hoping I have made a lasting impression on yours, at least for a while
so that one day I will not only be somewhere in a chapter of your life
but on the very pages you’ll turn to for reasons to smile.
