With You

Shyann Snyder

When I’m with you I act different,
In a good way. I smile more and laugh more.
With you, I can drop a fake smile and put on a real one.
I don’t feel hurt and alone when I’m with you.
Instead, I feel safe and loved.
You’re easy to talk to, and you listen to me.
I don’t feel sad, you show that you really do care,
And you’re not just pretending.
I really appreciate what you did,
Because with you, I’m different.
With you, I’m happy.
