Under your book cover I discovered more than I dreamed
Past your eyes, through your mind, you swim, operating in peace
God adds up my prayers for you
Hello turns into let’s get to know each other more
Hey I want more turns into friends assured.
Showing hidden thoughts
Calling each other when lost
And I love, love, how it breaks fear down
I told God I don’t want to be without you.
You allowed me to read
And I stayed up turning your pages
You trusted and believed
I wouldn’t rip you to shreds and I won’t
Memorizing every word
Still, I’ll continue to read it all until I die.
Others skimmed to their shame
Others left dirt upon you
Still some folded corners to use against you later
Some left bookmarks and never returned
