Oh how my heart did beat

When I saw him from my seat.


I had to know his name

This was my goal to gain.


I heard his name be spoke

Then I felt like such a bloke.


My words became a mess

Any my nerves became so stressed.


He winked at me and said

I noticed your pretty head


I strained to see your face

From my seat way back in place


He walked me to my next class

I nearly fell upon my ass


He grabbed me by the hand

He helped me gently stand


I looked him in the eyes

There were no questioning whys


Our hearts they did connect

Of him I dreamed when I slept


We dated for the next two years

When we broke-up I shed tears


I will always remember him

And I still smile when I think of then.
