This poem was for a Poetry Contest in 7th grade. The theme of the contest was Courage… and this is what I came up with. I just want to throw out there from the start that no one was on my mind when I wrote this. I have no idea where this came from – but from a 7th grader’s mind.

Everyday I wonder if you ever notice me
You talk, and walk but what do you see
Everyday I wonder if you love me
For I love you as the sky is blue
I have always wondered what’s new with you
I never notice how special you are
Until you told me you were going to move far
Away from me in a land of nowhere
Where people get paired

I wanted to ask you something really bad
But I couldn’t, I just couldn’t
I didn’t have the nerves and I was sad
I knew I had to ask you before you left
But I was mad
I didn’t know what I would do without you
You said that we were always going to be friends
No matter what happens

You really mean a lot to me
The thing is, is that I love you
And I don’t know what I’d do without you
You mean so much to me
And the thing I’ve been waiting to ask you
Is to marry me
