My love

by Kheswani Chunurmun (15)
Loreto College, Mauritius

You have turned me completely mad
Such that I have forgotten the entire world.
You don’t have any idea how important you are to me…
And I have no idea how to explain it to you.
Everyone says, you only fall in love once
But that’s not true
Because every time I see you,
I fall in love all over again.
When I close my eyes, I see you
When I open my eyes, I want to see you.
You are in my heart and I really love you
And nothing’s going to change this.
I don’t want you to buy anything for me
I just want you to pay attention to me,
Care for me, protect me and stay with me
For the rest of my life.
And don’t promise me the sun, moon or stars,
Just promise me that you will stay under them with me forever.
I love you to the moon and back,
To infinity and beyond,
Forever and ever.
