I have something to say
and it's about a boy,
who takes my breath away.
I can't get him off my mind
and it scares me every day.
your wrinkled pages
hold all my secrets.
No one in this world
knows me like you do,
so I'll confide in you.
as I sip my morning coffee
and walk to the living room table,
that gleams with the warm sun of April
I pick up my pen and write to you,
of the day I knew he was the one.
my sweet hazelnut coffee clings
to my taste buds with every sip.
As it gently coats my throat
memories begin to flood,
and hands take over your lines.
nestled on the couch I sit,
like a bird lays in its nest,
Pen to paper I write to you.
Soft ruffling sounds begin
as I go from left to right.
standing from across the room
I saw him there tall and slender
with bags in hand, I call out his name.
Eyes locked on one another
my heart had begun to flutter.
zigzagging our way through crowds
with a smile from ear to ear
and rosy warm plastered cheeks
I leaped into his arms with glee,
as if no one was watching.
curved lines at the end of my mouth
caught the single teardrop that fell.
Running my hands through his hair,
luscious and soft curly rods
just as they were the day I left.
with every kiss, my eyes would light up.
And in that moment I had realized,
I could not be away from him that long.
With my breath held tight I realized,
he was the only one for me.
