It takes just one look
Just one blink
My stomach flutters
Butterflies flying all around
Making me look dumb.
But I don't care. 
You make me happy 
Oh so very happy 
How long will you stay?
Are you going to leave me?
Prepare me please.
Tell me before I come off my high
Before I start to fall
My butterflies will die...
The caterpillar will never hatch.
No new feelings.
My heart beating it's normal beat.
No fun in that...
I want the feeling I have now.
Please stay with me
And hatch the butterflies
