Meeting My Future Crush

We met forever ago, like, literally, forever...
I was like six, you seven or something.
I can't quiet remember, but you tell me
I was shy, in the sandbox and had pigtails.
This I already know, I was VERY shy
when I was little, whenever we were at
the farmers market I was in the sandbox
and most definitely, positively, wore pigtails.
But you tell me I was fierce, determined and
had "the bluest eyes I'd ever seen".
That can't be true though, cause yours are by far bluer.
Pretty much all I remember is your Tie-Dye shirt,
your long blonde hair and your kindness and mirrored shyness.
And then I knew... we were going to be friends.
But it took awhile! A long time actually.
But when I met you (take 2) it wasn't
love at first sight or any of that junk,
I took a long, long time for me to warm up to you.
Heck I was like eleven or something when IT happened.
IT was like lightning, literally, figuratively,
emotionally, physically, and metaphorically fell of out the blue.
I suddenly realized that I cared. I really, actually cared.
I'm not sure if you've ever really loved me,
I'd heard rumors but rumors are just rumors,
but the way your eyes catch mine in
butterfly nets aren't rumors and your smiles
and hands squeezes sure aren't fake news,
your laughter and your devotion seem very real to me,
but would I even know love if it looked me dead in the eye?
Would the eyes be blue?
I don't know if you'd ever had those feeling but it doesn't really matter,
When I told you my heart, it was more for me then for you.
I don't know if you love me, I don't know if I love you,
but wherever this notion takes us, I know everything will be ok.
(Even if you do end up taller then me)
