I’ve been trying
I’ve been trying to understand why I fell for you.
Was it the way you looked?
Your beautiful brown eyes and sun kissed skin?
Was it the way your laugh made me laugh?
Or how a crowd always seemed to light up when you walked by?
Was it your keen understanding of the world?
And of the stars?
Maybe it was your kindness.
Or the way every child seemed to love you.
No. None of those seem like a good enough validation
For these intense feelings
I love you
I love you because for the first time in years
I have found someone that makes me feel like
Just simple me.
Maybe that’s a selfish reason to love someone.
But you make me feel more than anyone else ever could.
Maybe I am selfish
But I have you.
And that’s all I need.
