I can hear his heartbeat beating next to me Thump-de-thump-de-thump-de-thump It’s like a drum Beating to the rhythm of life
I was 13 when I found him.
He was strong The way he used to stand next to me Towering, but not quite He was a tree A figure of authority Show of power, confidence, poise
We weren’t the same Everyone dubbed us ‘the couple’ He was the popular nerd Always knew the answers to everything Strong opinions While I was…well I was the wallflower Sheltered and supported by his strong and tall roots
We were young love A relationship built entirely on chocolate and flirting The way you could weave your words around me Like a warm fleece blanket In the glistening snow Around the hearth His arms wrapped strongly around me Holding me in, but never letting me fall
My hands fit perfectly in his Always Like puzzle pieces Little nooks and niches resting in each other At the end of a long day
And his eyes They spoke of the ocean Waves crashing back onto shore Coming back to me every time A clash The way my chocolate eyes met his candy ones And I knew that everything would be all right
it's been 2 years since i met you. this was the first real poem i wrote about you, and i think it's amazing how our relationship has changed and where we are now. you're leaving this fall, and now suddenly my entire notion of love has changed. but you were the first, and i know that's something i'll never forget. i love you till the end of time.
