First time I saw, my eyes glazed over
You spoke with the most sincere voice
You words melted all over my heart like honey dew
Could it be? I asked myself often
I spent what seemed like an eternity,
Avoiding and evading the very thing that is now inevitable
I thought maybe if I make it all about the physical I can escape the fate,
The fate of all those that dare to feel
The more I got to know you, the more I found myself drawn to you
Yet somehow I knew that chances are we could never be
My heart started longing for you more often
Yet your affection seemed so forbidden and elusive
I thought maybe if I was just a friend, I would turn the tide
But my heart failed me,
Because I fell in love with you,
So deeply I knew that letting you go would surely break my heart
I wish so desperately that you feel the same
Because I am truly deeply and sincerely in love with you……
