It’s weird…

It’s like I’ve seen you before, and I miss you a lot.
Except, I haven’t.

And, I can’t help but get all giddy inside and wonder what you think of lil’ ol’ me.

I mean, you’ve been like super nice and everything, so you’ve got to like me, and I’m hoping that’s it’s obvious that I’m feeling you too.

Sometimes I wish that I could just completely clear my schedule just to chill with you. That might be a little too fun!

Do you know that I could never imagine myself not having your back?! And I can’t even count the times you’ve had mine!

I don’t know, I guess I just wanted to thank you. And without freaking you out too much, say…

That, even though I haven’t actually heard you say those 3 letter words, I know.

Because you’re different.
You’re unlike the others.

You express your love on a regular in ways my mind cannot fathom,
And if you just so happened to decide to speak those 3 words today, my goodness,
I doubt I could contain the slightest utterance from your lips.

In fact, I know that I can’t.

But full of gratitude, I thank you,
And full of confidence, I respond…

Abba, I love you back.

If I Were to Write… # Poetry #Poem 

If I were to write something right now
I’d write about the sky and how it’s not the limit
I’d think about released balloons
and their final destinations

I’d color it white.

If I were to write something right now
I’d write about the ocean and it’s ironic inability to quench your thirst
I’d think about the snorkelers
and the depth of their venue

I’d warn them of sharks.

If I were to write something right now
I’d pull out my favorite pen
and pray…

that my ears don’t pop
and the temperature doesn’t drop

but that’s only
If I were to write.
