I wish I was in love with you have never judged me, only guided me.
Never criticized me, only chided me.
You've encouraged me to grow
I admire you for the things you do, your deep-rooted honesty.
I respect your perseverance and cheerfulness when thwarted by the failure of your dreams.
I wake up some mornings wondering if I have been unbelievably silly
In holding out for the perfect mate
When all along there has been someone who loves me for myself
Knowing all my past and faults
Wanting to partake of my future
And each day that we are together smiling and enjoying the moment.
