Life Is Wherever You Are

Life is wherever you’re near. Life is wherever I can see you and talk to you, life is wherever I know I can come over when I’m lonely and hold your hand when I’m scared.

Life is wherever you’re with me. Because it’s easier to handle the downfalls, it’s easier to fall knowing you’re there to catch me and it’s easier to live another day knowing you will be there.

Life is wherever you take me. As long as I’m with you, I know I’m safe. As long as I’m with you, I know I don’t have to wonder about anything and as long as I’m with you, life makes sense.

Because I’ve been to the most beautiful places and I’ve seen the most beautiful faces and I still felt alone without you.

I felt dead inside; it was killing me to see the world when you weren’t there, it was killing me to share the best moments in my life with someone else.

I realized that life is not about what you see but more about who you see it with.

And I’m meant to see life with you, I’m meant to live next to you because otherwise I’m not really living when I’m missing you.

People told me I can go wherever I can go and be whoever I can be and I still choose to be next to you and choose to be yours.

Because the world is huge but without you it feels so small. The world is wonderful but without you it’s miserable.

Life is wherever you are because you know how to bring me back to life.

Life is wherever you’re close because a moment with you is worth more than a thousand moments with someone else.

Life is hard but with you it’s easier.

Life is frustrating but with you it’s soothing.
