This is a song/poem about a girl who wished that someone would write a song for her...

This One's For You

Listening to the radio
Watching the December snow fall
Another song plays real slow
By now she's heard them all


And they'll go on and on
Love songs and break-up songs
Song about letting go and song about holding on


Still she waits for the day
For one of them to say


This one's for you
For the times you don't know what to do
And everything is ending too soon
Just know that I'm thinking of you
This one's for you


Walking to the mailbox
Wearing just her gloves and a sweater
It's cold out but she is not
Cause somebody's sent her a letter


And it's just a paragraph long
But she reads it twice so she doesn't get it wrong
It says, "Hurry up now, go turn the radio on


I put in a request in today
And I just have to say


This one's for you
For the times you don't know what to do
And everything is ending too soon
Just know that I'm thinking of you
This one's for you
Cause I know that at times you're alone
And you wish that you could hear a song
In honor of all that you are and do
Well, this one's for you."


Well, she could hardly breathe
As the DJ announced that this song was in her name
She could hardly see
Through the tears that were sliding down her face


Well she could hardly breathe
As, in through the door, the man from across the street,
Who was the man of her dreams
Said "That song that was playing was requested by me."


He went on,
"And I know we haven't known each other for long,
But when I first met you, I couldn't stop singing this song...


So, this one's for you
For the times you don't know what to do
And everything is ending too soon
Just know that I'm thinking of you
This one's for you
Cause I know that at times you're alone
And you wish that you could hear a song
In honor of all that you are and do
Well, this one's for you."

I am 18 years old, and I absolutely love to write. I really could just write about everything, but personal issues and experiences are easiest for me.
