How it will Go

July 25, 2011
It’ll start out as a crush for a year or two
You’ll stare at me, I’ll stare at you
Nothing will start for at least a while
Except the occasional loving smile

And that’s how you’ll know I love you
Your star-filled eyes will see right through
to my heart, and you’ll see my love is true
Every day we’re together will feel brand new

And when the time is right, maybe high school,
I’ll trip on my own two feet, like the loveable fool
I am, and you’ll catch me, like the reliable soul you are…
My hands on your chest, my arms around your hips
I’ll look in your eyes, and then at your lips
And then, in front of everyone,
They’ll see our love has just begun.

You’ll say you’ve watched me for years
I’ll say the same, then blush, and then come the tears.
You’ll ask “are you okay?” and caress my face
I’ll say “I wouldn’t rather be any place.”
And that’s when you smile at me
I’ll know we were meant to be

A week’ll go by, everything will be fine
I’ll remind you often that I’m glad you’re mine.
You eyes will still be filled with stars
Knowing that this love is ours

Things’ll start slow, but that’s okay
It’s how I’d want it anyway.
You’ll understand, you’ll take me slow
It’s as if you always know
Where it is I need to go
I’ll trust you, you know I will
Each gaze in your eyes gives me a thrill.

Even if you need to leave
I’ll just cry, your chest will heave
with regret, I know you feel real bad
We’ll lean against each other, broken and sad
And after that, you’ll respect my space
With all the gentlemanly charm and grace
I know you have and that I miss
Reminded of that one last kiss

I loved this! It's so sweet; I can just imagine this whole scene playing out in my head. Very good imagery, and I absolutely adore the rhymes that you used... The only line that I might change is "each gaze in your eyes gives me a thrill." I think using "thrill" like that sounds like the girl's on a roller coaster... haha :) On the other hand, I really loved it!! Great job!

This is great! the rhythm is awesome i love the fact that you didnt loose the flow or get lost in the rhyme. Very cute and emotional. whoever the special girl is that you wrote this for should feel very lucky and loved.

Thanks :) Except it's about a BOY, and I'M the girl...but whatever. I think it's kind of interesting that it could go both ways though :P
