Genies don't exist,
how did I get my wish?
My wish came true,
it's all because of you.
My wish was to be happy,
I never thought I'd see the day,
didn't think things would go my way.
I wouldn't change a thing,
for you, I will sing.
I'll stand up with you, scream it loud,
I promise, I will always be around,
always, I can't believe I found,
the one whom I'll spend the rest of this life beside,
I'm ready, ready for the ride,
only in you, I will confide,
my arms open wide,
from you I could not hide.
Because you see through my wall,
you would never let me fall.
Genies don't exist,
but you are my wish.
My wish came true,
because of you.
I love that you see beauty in me,
I'll show you what I see,
what I see in you,
and all that you do.
No light could shine as bright as yours,
I'll lead you to the doors,
all the doors you can walk through,
against this world, it's me and you.
With you there's nothing I can't share,
I'd be all alone, if you weren't there.
I would share my thoughts to my reflection,
but there's no need, you are my protection,
and I am yours, this I promise you,
I'll love you always, my wish came true.
I never want to lose you, I'll hold your hand,
on top of the world, together we stand.
You'll never be alone, you'll sit so high on your throne,
It's you and me, our hearts have been sewn.
I love you now, forever, and always,
I'll carry you along, all through the days.
Genies don't exist, but I got my wish,
people wait a lifetime, for a moment like this.
This moment will live on, this love will never die,
some people wait a lifetime, living on a lie.
Some people don't see clearly, but I would sincerely,
give all I have, to see you smile,
to show you, your worthwhile.
Your the only thing worth living for, in these eyes of mine,
nothing will keep me from you, not even time.
I would walk through a storm, so you could see sunshine,
I'd walk through the pouring rain, any second of any time.
Your the reason I believe in love, your the reason for it all,
and believe me when I say, I'd kill so you won't fall.
You are pure, of this I am sure.
My reason for being on this earth,
is only for the rebirth,
of you.
My reason, is to give you life,
to pull out that knife,
sticking out of your heart,
we will NEVER be apart.
My purpose in this life is you,
to support you in what you want to do,
to lead you, and give you motivation,
to vanish the sense of frustration.
To make the image clear,
we've got nothing to fear.
I love everything about you, and everything you do,
to show your love for me, I know this love is true.
We are walking this journey, I'm holding your hand,
your all that matters, together we stand,
on top of the world, just me and you,
genies don't exist, but YOU do.

I wrote this piece for my wonderful boyfriend. It was during the time he was planning on moving to Oklahoma with me. I am so grateful to have him in my life.

This is good, but not as good as the others. The rhyming got to be a bit much.
