"There are far, far better things ahead than any we leave behind." -C.S. Lewis


I’m in high school and in love.
You may be thinking,
You’re too young for that,
And I’ll tell you that
I’m probably not thinking
Of the same kind of love
That you are.
I’m in the kind of love
That while you’re skipping down the road of life
You just fall in—
But you don’t want to crawl out
Because things are nice down there.
I’m in the kind of love
When you’re together
You’re not thinking of what you could have done
To change this moment
Or what will happen after this moment if over—
All you’re thinking of is that moment.
Right then and there.
It’s the kind of love
Where engagement rings
Aren’t in your line of sight
And the future doesn’t matter.
Oh, of course when I wake up,
Grow up,
I’ll see the foolishness of my ways,
And think,
“Oh, what a silly girl I was!”
But in all honesty,
I don’t care.


The author's comments:
My friend often told me she was in love. I looked her in the eye and said, "Silly girl, you don't know what love is." But actually, I was wrong. She did, but I didn't. So here's to you, my friend who was right. To my friend who lives this kind of love better than I really do.

I'll fell out of love more than I've fallen in.

Thank you! I actually didn't have the pleasure of falling in love yet, but my friend has. So I wrote this for her, because no one understands how she feels.
