I Want to Be (A Response to Her)

I want to be the guy who calls her beautiful instead of hot,

who calls her back when she hangs up on me,

who will lie under the stars and listen to her heartbeat,

or will stay awake just to watch her sleep…

I want to be the boy who kisses her forehead,

shows her off to the world when she is in track pants,

who holds her hand in front of my friends,

and will always think she’s just as pretty without makeup on.

I want to be the one who is constantly reminding her of how much I care and how lucky I am to have her…

I will be the one who turns to my friends and says, “that’s her”…
