Sometimes we make connections with people we hope may become something more. Sometimes there's a minor dalliance, but it doesn't amount to what we dreamed of. Unrequited love is never easy...


His customs, foreign to me.

His home, unwelcoming to me.

His friends, unknown to me.

His past, forbidden to me.

His love, exists not for me.

These things I know.

These things I accept.

These things I cannot change.

 

My life, I would give to him.

My heart, I would open to him.

My hopes, I would share with him.

My fears, I would trust with him.

These things I know.

These things I accept.

These things I cannot change.

 

His past, forbidden to me.

His love, exists not for me.

These things I cannot change.

Loved it Marilyn!!

It reminds me of something I keep thinking..is it their politeness , how long will they stay? how will I bear it when they go away..how much can I give or take before they get wary of me..
