"You can do ANYTHING! Don't let anyone tell you different."

To say that I won't ever love again
Would be, to me, a horrible mistake.
Because the thought of losing you, my friend,
Is one chance I am not willing to take.
You've opened up my eyes for me to see
Beyond the pain I've felt each passing day.
The lessons you have taught me bring relief,
Because from your lips, hope originates.
Although you bring me joy, I still have doubts
That I, in turn, am not enough for you.
But you spread reassurance all throughout
My mind and soul with everything you do.
The gift you've brought is truly from above--
An ornate box from heaven labeled "Love".

I wrote this poem as part of an assignment in my English class, and since I'd just gotten a boyfriend around that time, he was my inspiration (and still is :). I wanted to impress him with my amazing skills to prove once and for all that I'm the better writer between the two of us because we're always competing, and what better a way to do so than to make my topic about him? Killed two birds with one stone! Hahaha
