Beside you

Beside you, I could wander forever,
Sail across the ocean of life to bring dreams ashore.
Beside you, worlds of conversation breathe calmly into the atmosphere,
Landing upon soft hearts and open minds.
Beside you, pride and humility join our pace;
There is comfort in who we are and gratitude for what we have.
Beside you, nearness can be found even in distance.
Adventure brought us together and strengthens us to this day.
My partner, my friend, my lover, my family, my forever,
Beside you, you will find me.
