When I look at you,
You smile back like you always do.
You point at my shoe.
My face turns red,
And I don’t know why.
When we first met,
You were standing by a corvette.
You bought me some flowers.
You took me to the top of the Eiffel Tower.
But now I have to go take a shower.
When I go to bed, I dream of your face,
And plus of my untied shoelace.
When I borrow your glue,
You say yes.
When I needed your help,
You let me cheat off your test.
I saw you standing there with a heart-shaped chocolate.
I saw you have a picture but you put it in your pocket.
I think it was a picture of me,
And you look at it whenever you are free.
Your eyes are blue.
You came up to me and said I love you.
I woke up and I saw the ceiling.
That just broke my heart,
And broke my feelings.
By Anh T., Maple Elementary
You are my friend, my heart, my soul
You are the best friend that I know
You teach me how to do things right
You make the world bright at night
You taught me right from wrong
You were the one who showed me how to be strong
You told me to reach for Mars
I hope that I become the woman that you are
By Alejandro C., Maple Elementary
When I wake up from bed
You’re always in my head
When I see you at school
You treat me like a fool
You’re my crush
When you walk by me, my hearts in a rush
When I gave you a flower
You crushed it with power
You left me in tears
That’s one of my worst fears
You’re so smart
You’re always in my heart
You’re so cute
You never make me puke
You’re so funny
I wish I could call you honey
You get 100% on your test
I know you’re the best
When I grow up, I want you to be mine
If you say no, I’m still fine
