Dear You

dear you:
you don’t know how much
I yearn to see you.
Knowing that
you’re nearby
already makes my heart
skip a beat.

dear you:
you’re filled with
mysteries. I
want to investigate
more about
curious as I am
despite everyone
looking down on you.
You’re different.
that’s why you’re treated that way;
but in my eyes
you’re still that
special someone

dear you:
you may be older than
by a lot
like legitimate.
isn’t age just a number?
Your maturity,
wisdom, humility–
cliché as it may seem,
but that’s what I
look for in
my man;
something that I see
is lacking in today’s society

dear you:
you’ll never
be able
to know how much
you mean to me.
