Down On My Knees

This morning I awoke to find small, silver stones engraved with Valentine’s Day messages placed around the house: in front of the alarm clock, on my mousemat, on my vanity. When I got out of the shower and came back into the bedroom, there was a teddy, a card with a gorgeous, perfect message written inside it, and a box of chocolates.

I love you so much…you are everything to me. During the day we’re constantly writing each other, and most of my non-work thoughts are of you. You’re always there, in the back of my mind. You’re my rock, and although I know that my current depression has been tough on you, you’re the only thing that saves me.

I was just listening to our wedding song again:

Sometimes you wonder
How much I care
I get so distracted running nowhere
And I take for granted
Our love is secure
But if I started losing you
One thing is sure

I’d be down on my knees
Ready to pray
Darlin’ down on my knees
Making you stay
I’d be beggin you please
Don’t take your love from me
I’d be down on my knees

I learned to be strong
A long time ago
And I can face any wind no matter how hard it blows
But I’d have to be stronger than I want to be
If I had to live without you loving me

I’d be down on my knees
Ready to pray
Darlin’ down on my knees
Making you stay
I’d be beggin you please
Don’t take your love from me
I’d be down on my knees

No one matters more in my life
Makes me feel like you make me feel inside
I’ve come far enough to know loves
Worth never letting go of
And love is not a matter of pride

I’d be down on my knees
Ready to pray
Darlin’ down on my knees
Making you stay
I’d be begging you, pleading with you
Don’t take your love from me
I’d be down on my knees
