He was the one, I was sure of it

His short brown hair, the way he smiled

In my eyes, he was perfect


I hadn’t known him for long

He was new to me

Sure I had seen him around

But that was it

Nothing more


I always thought he was out of my league

And I was probably right

But I just couldn’t help but wonder

Maybe, just maybe

He might change his mind


If you had of said to me a few months before hand

That this boy would take an interest in me

I would have told you to grown a brain


But I was wrong, very wrong

One day, just an ordinary day

He looked at me

And smiled, that beautiful smile I had admired from afar

But never been close enough to look at properly


But standing this close

Close enough to feel his breath on my face

I could have began giggling with excitement

But I pulled myself together and played it cool


One thing lead to another and as soon as I had even realised

We were together


I can’t help but think about when he first held my hand,

Gently clasping each finger around mine and holding tight

But all good things must come to an end

I wish I could touch him again

For him to not be so far away, I would give everything I have

And too not hear nasty things he had told his friends about me


I’m gonna remember him the way he appeared to me

The boy of my dreams

Now just a distant memory

That’s all I have


I’ll never forget

Not until the day I die

And I hope that we meet again

In this lifetime or the next
