He’s Worth the Time

It’s nice to smile,
To remember what it’s like,
To be so happy like I was before.
Like I was with you.
But now there’s no regret,
No second guessing.
There’s none of that.
I’m just happy.
I’m not worried.
I’m not afraid.
It’s a wonderful feeling,
To be this free.

I look back at how it was,
With you and me,
How it was with all the rest.
I was worried and afraid,
I didn’t trust them.
Maybe I didn’t even trust you.
All I know was when I was with you,
I was the happiest I’d ever been,
But deep inside was a loss,
A sadness like no other.
I covered it up and pushed it away,
Pretended it wasn’t there,
But it lingered,
And as I thought things through,
I realized the truth.

Now I have him,
And there are no doubts.
There’s no second guessing.
I’m happy with him.
It’s amazing really.
The way he makes me smile.
All the things we can talk about.
We can just go on and on,
About anything and everything.
It’s always something new,
Forever something different.
There’s nothing that’s off limits.

The best part about it,
Isn’t that he can make me smile,
But that I can make myself smile.
I don’t need someone to make me happy.
Though it’s nice to find someone who does.
He does what you never could.
What no one ever could.
That’s what he does.

I don’t love him,
Not that way,
But that’s okay,
Because it’s not a rush.
He’s not going anywhere.
We can take our time,
And go through things.
It’s nice this way,
To feel this safe,
To be this happy.
That’s how it’s supposed to be.

I’m thankful for him,
Like I was for you,
But this time,
I don’t have to cover anything up.
I don’t have to turn a blind eye.
Not this time.
