One True Love

There’s a boy I met
not too long ago.
Since that day I knew
that I could never let him go.

He looked at me,
with the deepest dark brown eyes.
He could put the sun to shame,
with even the brightest skies.

He made my heart flutter
with every glance he took.
Then he held my hand,
and my whole body shook.

I can’t tell you exactly how I feel,
but every time I look at him
I know that it’s so real.

My greatest fear
is to ever let him down,
but as long as I live,
I will always be around.

I will learn all about him,
have patience and stay calm.
All I want in this world
is for him to never stop calling me “Mom”.
