You Matter by Mario Enrique Alvarez

Just because February is almost over, doesn’t mean the love is! Sticking to our theme of Attachment, Mario sent us a poem about a lasting love; one that even through the hard times it’s still there because it is more powerful than any barrier that might get in the way.

You Matter

I woke up this morning to your gaze

And I saw that smile upon your face

You stared at me like you were in a daze

As we both occupied the same bed at your place

 

I painted a picture in my mind

From the dream I had last night

The image of you was all that I could find

As your beauty hugged the canvass tight

 

In a world so cold it embraces hate

Where we both feel like we don’t belong

But meeting you was a work of fate

Cause together we play like we’re the same old song

 

So I will tell you tonight

That it doesn’t matter who wins every fight

Cause your heart belongs inside mine

And you matter so much to feel just fine

 

Our hearts are beating but they’re still in repair

We reached a point where love just wasn’t so fair

But it’s too late now to mourn those who don’t care

And we’ll find a way to deal with the wear-and-tear

 

Something that I want you to understand

That I breathe a little easier when you’re around

And I never want to let go of your hand

I’ll always be there and you’ll be safe and sound

 

We live in a world that’s driven by hate

And it makes us feel like we don’t belong

But we both met like it was a sign of fate

And we’re so in sync like we’re the same old song

 

And I will tell you tonight

That all of our demons won’t win this fight

And I’ll keep it warm enough inside for you

Cause you matter so much to feel this blue

 

Sleep for me is not a sigh of relief

Cause my past haunts me in my dreams

But when I lay next to you I find peace

And all those dreams are now full of gleam

 

You told me that you don’t feel real

And loneliness is an activity in which you thrive

But your heart is one that I want to steal

And you matter to me cause you make me feel so alive

 

I will tell you this every night

That the darkness in our lives will soon turn bright

And even when you don’t feel fine

You’ll matter enough for me to be mine

 

And I will tell you this every night

That it doesn’t matter who’s wrong or right

And we both can stay in this bed

Cause you matter so much to me instead
