I Won't Forget How To Love
>> View all 5
If I were to write a confession letter, this would probably be it.
When I first met you, I felt invincible: like I could do anything.
I felt something for you and became very skittish around you.
I finally became bold when I decided to ask you for a favor.
I became embarrassed when you teased me with your words,
But then agreed to my concealed request with your dimpled smile.
I hang on to your every word, wanting to learn all I can about you.
Whenever I see you at school, I always seem to be floating on air.
I notice the small things about you and the quirky habits that I like.
I stand so close to you, I could smell your cologne if you wore any.
When you laugh, it never reaches your eyes and I become saddened,
Yearning to know the reason and the real feelings you hide inside.
When you make me feel special by just being a friendly guy, I become
Touched anyway and foolishly hope that things would be different.
I go places that I know youíll be at; just seeing you makes me so happy.
I hear you sing and become encouraged to fulfill my own dreams.
When I see how passionate you are for certain things, I become
Awed and inspired to have something that I can be passionate about too.
Seeing you do so many things makes me feel dazed and dizzy.
When Iím around you, I feel at ease and become filled with peace.
When you smile, I become breathless and then selfish: I want your smile
To exist for only me: for me to be the only one who can make you grin.
I get so nervous and timid when I talk to you, afraid that Iíll go into a confession,
Knowing that it would only end in rejection, because of things youíve said.
I become scared, torn, and lonely whenever I think about saying goodbye.
Because my whole world is full of you, yet I donít exist in yours.
