One way, one love

by Angelina Christi (15)

When I first met you

I felt like I had known you forever,

Telling you my secrets

And what I didn’t want ever.

And we would become more than just friends.

Over a period of time,

I got to know the real you.

A boy so caring and gentle,

With a heart so true.

You’ve survived your life

With hurt and loneliness by your side.

I told you I’d never leave

Because the feelings I have inside are for you.

I know you like no one I have ever known

And sometimes I wonder

What I’d do if you were gone?

So I have decided

Time answers all.

If it is meant to be

Time will remove the wall.

I love the way we are together,

You can always make me smile.

Will it ever really be forever?

I guess I will have to wait awhile;

Time will reveal my feelings.

Meeting you has changed my life,

The feelings I feel for you

I will never let them go.

I always think of me and you.

Because you mean the world to me

You will always be in my heart.

Forever and ever,

Your spot will never be replaced.

You hold the key to my heart,

And you have since we met.

And no matter how much we fight,

Things will be okay,

I will love you forever.

I want you to be my prince and I your princess

And together we’ll rule over our new world.
