Love? No Way!!You smile, and that makes me smile -How weird is that?I never thought this could happen, because,Well, I liked you too much as a friend.But you liked me differently, and made me change my mind too.Very strange, To think that I, who am so unshakable in my ideas, am swayed by two simple words."Cate - I care."I looked into your eyes (a cheesy line, but nevertheless true)And I saw that you actually meant what you said!Oddly enough, I found that I did too - but about you.So ...I answered you, with words alien to my tongue: "I care too."And so it began with friendship, and it will end with love.For you move soon, and I'll still care! So we win both ways ...Definitely weird.by Cate Dunn, Brookfield, CT
