Linger

Don’t make me compete,
I am nothing like that girl.
I don’t know what you still seek,
But know, you are my world.

I don’t know what took so long,
To make me see your soul.
Just being in your presence,
Makes my life feel whole.

I can’t take back that moment,
When I chose so wrong that night.
Yet years pass, you still held on,
Your passion burning just as bright.

Do I deserve this kind of love?
After all I have not done?
In this moment, all I know,
I’m certain you’re the one.
