Eight Years

Eight Years ago today

you asked me out

and made it all okay.

You were my first

for love

and made my heart have an outburst.

It was after our Latin class

when I said yes

not knowing how long this would last.

My first time saying yes

to love;

the greatest thing I will ever possess.

Eight Years later

you still make me feel like a young

schoolgirl who has a racing heart bursting

out of her lungs.
