Or So...

I love you more than I thought...
or so that is what my mind says...
I love you more than I dreamed of...
or so that is what my mind says...
I cry when I'm not around you...
or so that is why my tears fall down...
I look at your picture smiling...
or so that is what my face says...
I can't believe I love you this much...
or so that is what my heart says.

I talk about you to my friends...
or so that is what they say...
I stare at your yearbook picture...
or so that is what my eyes say...
I... I... love you...
or so that is what my heart says...

Nothing can compare how much I have loved you...
how I loved to watch your every move...
the way you smile...
the way you walk...
they way you grin...
the way you write with your hand...
You are my first crush...
Only if you knew...
how much I have always loved you...

You first spoke to me a few days after I felt those emotions...
I was nervous and scared...
and all you said was "Hi"...
those words were the world to me...
All I could do was stare...
The bell rang, you walked your way...
I walked mine...
I kicked myself later for that...
Or so that is why I cried myself to sleep that night...
or so... that is what my tears said...
