An unwritten letter to the friend who stole his heart...

I taught him that crooked smile
That sends shivers down your spine.
I taught him those special words
‘I love you’ and ‘please be mine’.

I taught him that hug
The way he holds you like a butterfly.
I taught him that kiss
That lingers like a lullaby.
I taught him how to love.

And remember while he’s holding you
I taught him how to hold me too.
And notice you’ve never finished a fight
My words taught him that on our last night.
Remember I taught him
I taught him how it’s supposed to be
I taught him how to love
I taught him how to love me.

I taught him his manners
So daddy wouldn’t chase him away
I taught him chivalry
The things he’ll do to save your day.

I taught him honesty
So you know he’ll always confide
I taught him how to protect
You’ll always have a safe place to hide.
I taught him how to love.

And remember while he’s holding you
I taught him how to hold me too.
And notice you’ve never finished a fight
My words taught him that on our last night.
Remember I taught him
I taught him how it’s supposed to be
I taught him how to love
I taught him how to love me.


Don’t think I don’t think about him
And just hope he doesn’t think about me
Because wherever we go, we both know-

I taught him that look
That says you’re his whole wide world
I taught him these lessons
To show, you’ll always be his girl.
