Once Upon A Time

I recently found this one while searching through an old notebook for a sheet of blank paper. It was written for a girl I was in love with at the time, who spurned my affections. lol

You are the one that got away
but you're not away.
You're the closest thing to my heart
that ever was; like a tiny flower that
grows there, in the cracks

White and pink. Indigo
like the night sky that we sat beneath
while watching the stars twinkle and twirl
like diamonds

The real stars are the ones in your eyes
Eyes that captured my breath
the first time I saw you.

I saw God that day, in those eyes,
in your holy face.
I wanted to light a candle
and pray to YOU.
