I'm no one special.
I have brown hair and brown eyes.
Pretty generic right?
I always try to keep a smile on my face
Because I fear the alternative.
I'm afraid of falling
I never seem to stick to anything.
I start many different races
But I've never seen the finish line.
Then you smiled at me
And despite my best efforts
I can't quit you
And I'm not scared of falling
Because you catch me every time.
You walk beside me in my races
And even if I still don't finish
You're still there encouraging me.
I don't stand up for myself when I should.
Staying quiet is way less scary
But you make me braver.
You may not have changed the common colour of my eyes
But you sparked a fire in them
That makes them shine brighter than ever.
Maybe it sounds silly
Or insignificant to other people
But everything just makes sense when you're there
You heighten my happiness
And brighten my entire world
You bring excitement into my simple life
I love you baby :)
