Time to be your “forty-one”; mentally, I mean,

Time to revise everything you’ve seen.

Time to be your one before it turns too late,

Time to be the girl you never underestimate.

Time to be the one, who understands what you really are,

Time to kill the fear of giving you my heart.

Time to grow up quickly and assume all of my chores,

Time to be the person you won’t consider immature.

Because I know that I’m too young and know so little about this world,

And you are forty-one and seriously you’ll never take this girl.

But I aspire to be someday,

The one who takes your breath away.

And though to reach that point I need,

To be more than ecstasy.

In your eyes it’ll be unbelievable,

The way I’ll turn so unforgettable.

So I must grow an enrich my wits,

And become the poison on your lips.

The venom without the antidote,

Your name I’ll praise; your love I’ll gloat.

That you think that you and I can never be I truly do abhor,

Non-sense from your mouth I won’t take it anymore.

You’re skeptical of me and with that I cannot live,

I wish that you could see all that I can give.

Time to aggrandize my mind and narrow my mistakes,

Time to rationalize and my silence break.

I’m unsure myself where this could really go,

And if I will truly love you; I don’t even know.

But it’s hard to say when you are so distant,

Even when you give me affection it’s only for an instant.

And it’s time to crawl before I run,

It’s time to be your “forty-one”.
