The Truth Is, My Greatest Fear Is Losing You

Every passing day, I fall more in love with you. You make life worth living. 

I crave your presence. I feel security when your arms are wrapped around me. 

Although, I need you to know I have this fear. I don't know how to overcome it. 

But I think to myself; even us, you and me, the two people who are so in love could maybe one day fall out of love…

I have these fears and maybe they will never happen but I need you to know. 

I've been broken in my past. I've been beaten down and left feel like who I was was never quite enough. 

And this fear is engraved in my being. 

I know we are beautiful together, I know we love each other with everything we have. But that fear will never leave me. It's not that I'm scared of commitment. I've seen even the most loving couples fall apart.

I've watched the people I've looked up to fall out of love every day. I don't want that to be us. I want us to be the couple that lasts. 

I'm scared that one day we'll grow apart. That you won't look at me the same as you do now. 

That one day you will walk away without ever looking back, I'll bury you and read your name engraved in a stone. 

I'm scared that one day you will be gone. 

I can't bear the thought, I know I'll never know how to live my life without the one person who made it worth living. 

Who I am, is every part of you.

Without you, I don't know how to be me.
