Right Person, Wrong Time

I am tired of listening to everyone around me telling me that I am wrong for still believing,

Because they are so used to giving up on love and having everyone close to them suddenly leaving.

I have been there too, constantly questioning why I am never good enough,

And continuously having to move on while having those thoughts is extremely tough.

You can't just give up on someone who you thought would be in your life forever,

And I am slowly starting to learn now that you can never truly say never.

If I had listened to them when they all told me I was wasting my time, I wouldn't be where I am now,

And sometimes I just sit back wonder how.

I don't think I will ever understand how we ended up getting to this point, but I think I like it,

And I am really proud of myself for believing in us when everyone was telling me to quit.

I have silenced the voices in my head that were telling me it was because I am not good enough for you,

And I have learned that there is so much left for us to do.

The whole time, it was the distance between us and our busy schedules that were keeping us apart,

And I am so proud that I didn't listen to the outside voices, and instead I chose to listen to my heart.

I know it isn't going to be easy, but I am know that we are going to have to take it slow,

And even though it is very easy for someone to read me like a book, I know that I am going to have to make sure my feelings don't show.

I know why you say what you say, and I know the reason why you actually never told me the words no,

But I can tell that as we continue to be with one another, our feelins for each other only continue to grow.

I have told you things that I don't talk about, and I know that you are doing the same,

And my heart begins to race and my head starts to spin every time that you say my name.

I know that when it comes to you, it is all about the right person at the wrong time,

Because no matter how hard I try, you are constantly on my mind.

Sometimes I feel like you don't feel the same, but yet every time I ask, you always want to see me,

And you always make time to see me anytime that you are free.

I am realizing that right now, it is hard for us to be together because we both have so much going on,

And no matter how hard I try, I know that the love I have for you will never be gone.

Even though I wish things between us were happening faster, I know that I can't rush this,

And I know that it will all be worth it when we finally get to share our first kiss.

Until that happens, I know I need to contine to work on me and my goals so that way you can finally see,

The person that I have always believed is the real me, and so that you can see all of the things that we can be.

I know that everything happens for a reason, and there is a reason that you came into my life when you did,

And I love being able to tell the story that we have know each other since we were kids.

I know that one day we will look back and be able to tell our story that is full of laughter, tears, and joy,

And that it all started at work when I started talking to this random younger boy.
