Start Our Happy Ending

I'm burned again by this torch I carry,
It's the one that bears your name.
And i'm peeking through the looking glass,
And your eyes don't look the same.

The glow that used to leave me breathless,
Has faded to a sigh.
And your smile that lit a thousand nights,
Is muffled like your cries.

The way you talk was graceful once,
And full of brighter days.
But the waves that crashed on gentle thoughts,
Have washed your dreams away.

I'd reach down there to pick you up,
But my arms don't have the length.
I cry at night because it helps sometimes,
But I still don't have the strength.

So i'll rest tonight on the screened-in porch,
And listen to the night.
I'll figure all this out for you
And pray we get things right.

Because I only want the best for you,
And these words will never show.
Just stack the weight upon my back,
And whisper where to go.

And if it's not enough you can stack on too,
Because I love you for us both.
And unless I see you smile right now,
My heart will just explode.

So come rest in my arms tonight,
And let your body go.
I'll hold you up and tell you things,
Nobody will ever know.

Because it's only me and you right now,
We're the only ones who matter.
You're the only person in the entire world,
My life is patterned after.

And if you take my hand and believe my words,
I'll never let you down.
Because since we met that faithful day,
My feet haven't touched the ground.

So it's just the truth I ask of you,
And our hearts will start their mending.
Because I want to settle down with you,
And start our happy ending.
