The Love You Find When You Open Your Eyes

So I met this guy 
Who gives me everything 
in the world 
I have known him since sixth 
But then we had a fall out 
I love him to death 
I hope marry him some day 
But will love me even with 
my past 
Between the rape to the beatings
from dad 
Yes, he will 
This is the love I found because 
I opened my eyes and looked 
at the big picture 
I love you Andrew Alan Huddleston
