I don’t care if you are
older than me
younger than me
richer than Midas
or poorer than mice
cute as a button
or plain as the day is long.

I just want you to be kind.

I want you to be the person
others look forward to seeing.
Who’s appearance on the scene,
makes my heart lean
unconsciously toward you.

Who’s heart knows it belongs
intertwined with mine
from the first moment
you ever see me
until the day
you say goodbye.
