Can you hear my cry?
A timeless hope
An unrequited yearning
A secret untold
Could I be falling?
Confusion surrounds me
Questions flood through my mind
Answers beyond my reach
I can almost hear you calling
Is my mind playing tricks on me?
Because I am finding it hard to believe
That someone so amazing and so sweet
Could have just as easily fallen for me
But quite stubbornly kept it from me
I wish I could just blurt out the secret so carefully hidden
But I fear a rejection beyond any pain imaginable
I hope to take a breath count to three
And say “I Love You” and you would then be mine to keep
