Daughters of jerusalem, I charge you by the does and gazelles of the field; Do not arouse or awaken love until it so desires. -Song of Songs 2:7

Going through a year book from last year, I found your picture. Your hair was longer then but you still had that perfect smile.

After staring for several minutes, I saw how mature you had become. I picked myself up and headed for home.

Racing through time and life, I sprawled out on my bed with nothing to do but think. All that came to mind was that picture.

Risking your rejection, I wanted so badly to say it. I wanted you to know. Instead, I curled up so I could sleep.

Every dream I had involved you. You kept looking, whispering, smiling.

That dream kept me going, pushing myself to get back to the school so early in the morning.

Today I saw you in the hall for at least the third time in two hours. You were smiling again.

For the name of (one of) my mysterious freshman year crushes, read the first letter of each paragraph... Do you see Garrett's name?
