I Never Want to Let You Go

Updated on May 28, 2012

I Never Want to Let You Go

When I tell you that you mean the world to me

I’m not saying it to make you happy

Or to lie to myself inside

Or to bloom roses in a field of weeds

But because I really mean it

When I cradle your head to my chest

It’s not because I saw it on TV

Or because I know it’s the right thing to do

But because I want to protect you always

When I get scared and cling to you

It’s not because I want to put you in danger in my stead

Or even because I believe you will solve the problem

But because I instinctually feel safe with you

When I hold onto your arm

And grip you so tight to my chest

It’s not because I want to embarrass you

Or make you feel loved

But because I never want to let you go
