Ode to a boy

You smile when you see me,
Walking down the halls.
And when you grab my hand,
The butterflies fly all around.
You whisper “I love you”,
And the smile covers my face.
You can’t make it disappear.

You’re the one who makes me sleep at night,
You’re the one who I wake up for.
You’re the one I do everything for,
You’re the one I can’t deny.
You’re the one I want only the best for.
You’re the one, who’s everything to me,
You’re the one who I believe in, more than anyone.

You’re perfect,
Funny, nice sweet.
Always make me laugh,
Never make me cry.
Never let go, I’m always in your arms.
You’re the boy I love and long for,
I never want to leave.

Days with you past quickly.
You’re on my mind,
At all times.
I wonder what you’re doing,
And if you’re thinking the same.
I wonder if you love me,
And then the phone rings.

You call just to say “I love you,”
A quick reminder to show you care.
And when I am almost done,
Fed up with all my life,
You grab my hand and refuse to let me go,
Because I mean the world to you,?And you know you mean the world to me.

Together we are one.
Not two separate people,
But one soul dwelling in two bodies.
One heart that beats,
One mind that thinks.
We are one together,
Meant to be.

Even though you’re a know it all,
And you’re sense of humor is pretty lame,
You make me happier than anyone else in the world.
Even though you’re ridiculous
And go to sleep at 10
Even though you’re the most annoying person I know,
You’re the one I chose, the one I love.

I hope you know,
That you are simply my world.
I hope you know,
That even though we’re young we have the hearts of the elderly.
I refuse to be just another high school fling,?You mean too much for that.
I hope you know, I love you.?

This is a piece that I kind of forgot about after an experience happened, but I'm really proud of it, and it means a lot to me.
