When No One is Around

by Maren L Johnson   Nov 17, 2015

When no one is around,
you pull me into your arms
and I'm your forever girl.

When no one is around,
you share your secrets
and I pledge to keep them.

When no one is around.
you're a warrior,
a fearless James Bond
type brother.

When no one is around,
I am your smile
I cook you dinner and,
linger for a time.

When no one is around,
you say you want to marry me,
and we sift through memories.

When no one is around,
we are everything
and just for a little forever
you're mine.

    Awe, I wanted to cry since the part that wasn't mentioned but was implied was, "when he's around other people" he's different and just breaks my heart.
