Your home is my favorite place
I said to the boy with a beautiful face
You make me laugh
And you make me cry
But no matter what I’ll stand by your side
Loving you for the rest of time

I always wish we had more time
To be together in our favorite place
Just a few more minutes with you by my side
Then I look at you with the saddest face
I close my eyes and try not to cry
Than you say something that makes me laugh

I wish you didn’t laugh
For now we have run out of time
I don’t want to, but I feel I might cry
Time for me to return to my place
Where I can’t see your face
Or be by your side

It’s time to choose a side
To be sad or to laugh
Instead I make an awkward face
For an extended period of time
Wishing I was still at your place
But wondering, why did I cry?

I know why I cry
Because I long to be by your side
I yearn for us to have our own place
A place where we can laugh
A place to spend all of our time
A place where I can always see that beautiful face

But I can’t see your face
There’s no need to cry
There will come another time
When we’re side by side
When together we laugh
This will be our place

My poem is about being with the boy with the beautiful face (my boyfriend) and wanting to be with him when were not together
