The following story was written by Natasha, from St-Bruno, Quebec. She is enrolled in literacy classes with the South Shore Reading Council.
To me I know that I can love you like she did and I know that I can love you more. And I know that I can love you as I love life. So just give me something to work with so I can make you happy, because I know that I can make the sun shine on you when it is raining. I can make you show your love when you just don't want to because I am your woman. So don't think that I am going to love you one day and the next day I won't; I am not like that. So just say you will be mine from this moment. Just be the guy I fell in love with because all I need is your heart. That is all I want from you. I will love you always. I know that it's just words but they mean more than words to me. So just let me love you and maybe you will love me too. Because you win my love you're the one that made me feel like I can fly on the moon and you're the only one that did not make me feel like I had to be someone else. And that is why I fall in love with you and I know it's hard to believe that I feel like this. But just think of all the things that I said to you when we talk on the phone and when we went for walks. Just be the man I need and fell in love with... And you know how you are.
