From Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul on Love & Friendship

In Love

This feeling overwhelms me

A swelling of the heart

I never truly thought I would be

This happy at the start.

You take me by the hand

And lead me by the heart

Over a beach of sand

Through the grasses that we part.

With you I let go

Of intuition and sound mind

My feelings I cannot help but show

To a person who is so kind.

You kiss my lips so tender

Embrace me through the night

To you I have surrendered

Myself so hold on tight.

So strongly you hold my hand

Whisper softly in my ear

I really feel that you understand

Everything you hear.

I lose myself in you

This close I have never been

These feelings are so new

To have a lover who is my friend.
