Before My Last Breath

I know this all happens really fast,
But you have a way of making me forget my past.
I loved you to death, all in just one breath.
O never knew I would find love as pure and
   true as you.
You make my heart skip beats and with your love
  baby, I’m 100% complete.
You’re all I want and need, for you I will bleed.
I feel as if you’re my matching seed.
I will still love you when I’m free from here.
I want you to be my friend and maybe one day my wife.
So I can love you and have you for the rest of my life!
I will always care and be gentle with your heart
So it won’t tear.
I promise to never make you shed a tear,
Instead I will put my love for you in full gear.
I hope one day I will find you so I can tell
You these words and hope they come true
So all of my dreams of you will stop making me feel blue.
Do you feel me as I feel you and trust me as i
Trust you.
And trust me when I say that when I find
You, I will love you for life and love you
To death, all the way till I take my last
