Her

Kingston 2007 (Gainesvill)



I lay in bed thinking,
Will she hate me if I tell her I'm in love with her,
Will she slap me, and yell at me,
Will I regret every day that I've spent gathering courage to tell her,
Will I?
I hear the front door, open, she walks in my room,
"Lizzie" I breath,
"Yes" she smiles,
"I love you" I finally say and she runs to me and kisses me,
I don't regret this,
I don't hate this,
I do love her,
She loves me,
and I'm happy to say she just wanted some tea.
