You are sweet, gentle, funny, 
and kind
You are one type of boy not 
easy to find
Whether I am happy, sad, 
moody, or wild
You follow my mood
Even if I act like a child

Your eyes are deep
Your smile like a dream
Your skin soft
Your style with no theme

You doubt yourself highly
And feel hated by all
And don’t understand
That I fall,

When I hear your voice 
And you say you’re free
Or the feel of your arms
When you hold me

When I was sad and alone 
You came along
Made my world brighter
Helped me be strong

So please just understand
That all I’ve been through
I haven’t loved anyone 
 The way I love you
