Yesterday I fell in love with a boy.
When he looked at me, my heart did cartwheels hoping it would fall and he would catch it.
When he touched me, my knees gave way hoping he would hold me.

Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks.
When he spoke he reminded me of Solomon with the integrity of Joseph.
His heart for God reminded me of David, his courage reminded me of Joshua.
When I looked at him, I saw him drenched in 1Corin15:58.

I wonder if he saw me?
Or perhaps, ... fell in love with me too?
Did his heart skip a beat when I smiled at him?
Did he long to hold me too, as I brushed past him?

When he looks at me, does he see the boldness of Esther,
aligned with the submission of Mary, engulfed by the tears of a praying Hannah?
Do I remind him of P31?

Yesterday, I fell in love with a boy.
But I wonder, will he fall in love with me too?
