"The Day I met You"

You were a shy one,
hair up in a bun.
You wore your heart on your sleeve though,
I could tell.

You wore glasses,
and was reading a book,
some fictional fairytale.

It was then that I decided,
I wanted to be your friend.
It was then that I decided
that I would love you.

Although, we never physically met,
this is how I pictured you.
Sitting there in the courtyard,
on a sunny school day.

We were just teenagers then,
still learning and yearning to live.

A wonderful portraiture of beautiful colors and friendship, never to be replaced. What would life be without tender friends who love and give of their hearts and time so freely. Rated Up and awesome for the both of you. Hugs
