Bridge Over Troubled Water


I know at times I act crazy and do stupid things. I know at times I'm the one who gets things started. I also know that even when we are arguing or mad at each other, we still love each other. If they could ever hear us argue, some people would say that we are not going to make it because, well, we can get harsh, but they do not know us. Baby, nobody knows what I have had to do to get where I am. Nobody knows what you had to do to get where you are. Nobody knows us, except for us. Baby, nobody knows about the things in my past that I had to overcome to trust you. Nobody knows what you had to overcome. Nobody knows about how scared I was of you because of what one person did to me. So many people think that I am crazy for falling in love with you, but how can they judge someone that they do not know?

It mystifies me how so many people can try to tell me what I need when they do not even know me. It hurts that the people who are supposed to know me try to take my happiness away. You know about my past, you know that I have a hard time trusting, and you know that at times it is hard for me to put my feelings into words. I know that we have problems, but we always work them out.

Everyone sees you as the person that you used to appear to be, but you are far from it--and always were. You treated me better than people that are in my family. You brighten my life. You are my life. Every promise that you have made me, you have kept. You always know when something is wrong, and you always know what to do to cheer me up. You were there for me at the time that I needed you most. You were there when nobody else was. You were the bridge over troubled water, and you calmed me with your love.

Baby, I am writing this to tell you that I love you more than anything, and I would do anything to be with you for the rest of my life. Thank you for waiting for me--waiting for me to give my heart to you. Today, I want you to know that I am starting over--we are starting over. I want us to be happy. I know that even the so-called best couples have their problems, but I do not want our problems to hurt us in any way. I do not want my bridge to fall down. Baby, today I promise that I will do everything that I can to keep us together.
