He never had to say that he loved me
because his eyes told the whole story.
He refused to smile because he hated his teeth,
but every once and a while I made him laugh
so hard that I had seen their beauty anyways.
Whenever he would hold me I felt his heartbeat
against my cheek and that made me feel safe.
I looked into his blue eyes and swore to him
that I would never leave his side and that promise
will forever be kept as long as I am able breathe.
