You found your way into my heart,
And I didn't even notice when this did start.
At first it seemed like just a seed,
So small, so young, it seemed nothing to heed.
But in these long yet short, few nights,
It seems you've sprouted into the light.
Your stem is firm and your roots in place,
You won't be leaving, not now I've seen your face.
It seems even you don't know where you're growing,
But I won't tell you now, for fear you might start slowing.
I'm happy about this, having you here,
Despite distance between, you feel so near.
The tone of your skin, and the black of your hair,
And your cute little hands, to match your smile, so fair.
When I looked in your eyes, I thought I might drown,
In the all of the beauty that began to surround.
I'm trying to hold back, to not let my roots grow too,
But at this point, my heart beats only for you.
To see you bloom, now that is one dream,
A scene that won't fade, the light which endlessly gleams.
May the witness to this be only me?
Or am I not who it's meant to be?
Will things always go accordingly?
Or can we rust these chains, and break free?
About this girl I met recently. I like her, quite a lot, and when I think about her, these words come to mind.
