Oh how I have failed


Only now

Do I realize

What a fool I have been.

I laughed,

I lied,

I believed I had fallen

And ran from love,

Ruined all chance

To save myself.

I thought

I knew the pain,

But then.


I found you.

I fell in love

An oh, oh,

Never, never

Has anything hurt

More than this.

How I wish to cry.

How I yearn to tell,

Face to beautiful face,

How much

I love you.

But this leap,

Do i dare jump?

If loving you

This much


So deeply

The pray tell,

How I'll ever survive

My love requited?
