Balloon Days

That I won't be here
After next year
Breaks my heart
Because I have fallen in love with you,
I think.
Your gorgeous smile
Your deep brown eyes
Your joy in the little things
Your stubbornness in the face of adversity
The way you reach for the stars
Or the moon, at least
Make me want to be with you
Through all life gives you
And I am sure
You will ask me to stay with you always
Just as soon as you learn
How to say it.
