Only you are the one for me

So there’s this boy…he kind of caught my eye.
He makes me smile, and never makes me cry.
So different, from anything I’ve known.
As time progressed, my feelings have grown.
He treats me like no other has ever before, he treats me like I’m gold.
He warms my heart with fire, when it used to be so cold.
Because of him, I see the beauty in me I never thought I had.
He makes me feel wanted, and never gets me mad.
He loves me for who I am, I don't need to pretend.
Oh I thank you haven, hope this feeling never end.
I finally understood what love really meant.
And this boy is sincerely God sent.
We were together always and always together.
Nothing could part us not even a stormy weather.
So we started planning for the future, the things we wanted to do.
And prayed really hard that all our dreams would come true.
One bright day he was on his way to buy me a present.
Our 1st anniversary and he told nobody why he was absent.
I had this sick feeling that something was wrong.
It's been more than 6 hours he has been gone.
Next thing i knew there was an accident.
Somewhere around where he had went.
They found him cold and lifeless on the road.
"It was an accident, he was going so fast..." someone told.
He broke his promise, he said we'd always be together.
Living by each others side forever.
I couldn't believe my eyes, he must be joking.
It's so unexpected so impossible, I started laughing.
They found a necklace in his pocket.
A nice silver chain with heart shaped locket.
He had been rushing to get it for me.
Inside was written "Only you are the one for me".
Tears were falling from my eyes, I couldn't stop myself but cry
Everything was so perfect...Why did you leave me and die?
