She, the way she walks, talks, and carry’s herself is
She, the way she looks at me with those big brown eyes
makes my heart stop and I feel paralyzed
She, the way she smiles can brighten up a poor man’s day
and make him feel rich in every way
She, sculpted so perfectly with a face of an angel, the
devil can’t help but to be mad at what he doesn’t have
She, the way she flips her long dark hair takes my breath
away, each strand is beautiful in every way
She, the way she laughs, makes me believe anything is
She, with lips so soft, and kisses so sweet she knocks me
clean off my feet
With a heart of gold, and a personality so rare, oh man I
can’t help but to stare
She, with beauty inside and out I’m the luckiest person
without a doubt
She, still gives me butterflies, and makes me tongue
tied; I don’t know what’s next
How can one person make me so weak, but give me so much
life at the same time, she is my drug, my one and only love
She is the best thing for me, lying in bed, stealing
kisses that’s life at its best; mesmerized by everything she does
She I tell you SHE is the one for me!
