The One - Poem by Ryan Belcher

I want you to be the one
Yet you will never be the one
it can not, will not ever happen.
For there is one who is in the way.
I want, sometimes even need you,
somtimes I think I will die without you.
But then I remember you're no one important.

    ' you might just be one person in the world, but remember, you might just be the world to one person'
    isn't that all that really matters?

    Thank you for sharing this piece with us, it brought to mind someone I hadn't thought of in a long time.
