4. How I know you love me

I told you quite a while ago 
How I know you love me 
I told you 
"It's in the way
you look at me
and all the things
you forget to say"
That holds true 

It's in the tea you make me when I'm ill
Even if it's not sweet enough
You sweeten it by making it 

It's in the smile when you see me happy
Either by your doing or mine
I adore that smile

It's in the way you say my name
With the "I love you" hidden
Buried in your bright eyes

It's in the way you take care of me 
Commanding but sweet
Ordering me around for my own good

It's in the dreams you share with me 
Both in your deepest sleep
And your hopes and visions

It's in your faith in me 
The promise that I will succeed
The courage that I have value

It's in our odd conversations 
At three in the morning 
Or two in the afternoon 

It's in the way you keep me safe
And how I keep you wild 
With the promise of tomorrow 

It's the protection of my faith in me 
You (try to) make sure I love myself
Just as much as you love me 

It's in the way you listen
With wide eyes of wonder 
And remember what I've said

It's in the way you hold me close 
Because in that moment you can
You keep me safe and calm 

It's in the way you build to my life
Showing me things I enjoy 
And enjoying the things I show you 

It's in the way I can be free
I can cry and dream you accept all of me
And for that you get the most thanks 

It's in the way you remember me 
The way I look first thing in the morning 
And last thing at night 

It's in the way you don't tell me everything's okay 
You let me hurt, don't scorn me for crying 
You let me live and help with the fallout

It's in the way you make me feel 
Either wrapped up with you in the dark 
Or bathed in water and sunlight 
 

So like I will say
In many and many a year to come
In our kingdom by the sea
"It's in the way you look at me
and all the things you forget to say."
Will always hold true
