I like long term,
I like forever.
I like never ending,
I like clever.

I like note passing,
I like exchanging eyes.
I like shy confrontation,
I like hearing your reasons why.

I like innocence,
I like fun.
I like freshness,
I like feeling the sun.

I like conversation,
and I like your time.
But I like to be loved,
like it’s the first time.
