Love is always..

So many good things and
to start,
I have lost my heart to her,
is that a loss?
thinking it’s my gain I tell her
I love her,
she knows
and I know too that she loves,
when she says,
I love you too.

twenty past seventeen
and the new year starts
to gleam

so glad that I’m here
bring on
this new year

and I guess this is for you,
the one and
when true love becomes true
nothing else matters.
