Word-High July: Dalisay

Please visit here to learn more about this 30-day challenge.

 

That Boy

My heart was overflowing
With joy, pure and strong
When I looked across the room
and saw that boy.

As he smiled, my heart quivered
His blue eyes sparkled
When I looked across the room
and saw that boy.

He reached out and took my hand
My heart found its home
When I looked across the room
and saw that boy.

    KILIG! Aww… this is a very sweet poem. I especially love the last lines,
    “My heart found its home
    When I looked across the room
    and saw that boy.”
