in the forest

-

he went to her and just knew

so he asked what was wrong—

while their friends quickly left them

to the privacy of each other

-

she told him; remembering that

he didn't like it when she said 'nothing'

for once, she wanted him to know

for she needed him on that very day

-

and they went for a stroll

through the pathway of the forest

where she showed him her secrets;

casting aside her fears and—

told him of a lucky star

-

still she would have said more

and told him of her wishes;

of how they had finally come true

before asking him of his dreams

-

but she sought for his comfort

through the peaceful silence

as they stared at the darkening sky

in each others warm embrace

-

when she laid her head upon him

she noted how well they fit together;

as if it were just meant to be—

and that brought a smile to her face

not just because he can make her laugh
