Bright, clear, cold.
Newly fallen snow crunching underfoot
As I walk to where I should be.
With you, in your arms, all I can think is
'What did I do to deserve this?'
We share our thoughts, our dreams
About the future and what it might be.
In the brief time we've been together
We're closer than I could have ever hoped to be.
You are everything I hoped you would be
Strong, caring, so sure of yourself.
I want you to know that I may love you
But it's too soon to tell.
I'm still shaken over the last and how that hurt
And I thank you for standing by through this.
At the very least, I care deeply for you
And what you mean to me.

I really liked this one. It seems honest and unsure, and it's the uncertainty that prevents it from feeling contrived. Excellent work.

But you should add "me" to line fifteen.

Thanks for the suggestion. I have a habit of forgetting rather important words when I get going on my writing.

This is wonderful!
This poem glows with honesty and feeling. You feel as you read it which seems to me what good poetry should do. I could feel the trepidation and the uncertainty that comes with being posed on the brink of new love. This is really good. I enjoyed this poem very much.

Wonderful. A heartfelt piece of work. It's soaked with sweat and tears.

depends on one's taste... I don't know if it was willed to be written as simple as i is, like a mushy love letter on a tissue paper.

For sure a girl in love will dig this, but the poetry teacher will not. Unless the simplicity is willed to be so it may not qualify as peoetic. Besides if it was willed to sound that way, the title should have been given more weight. It captures the reality of commitment and the question of when to say I love you.. a problem so contemporary that people can relate too. In that sense it fine. I give it a six point five of ten... but it could have been made better.
