When all that we have is my love...

You may not know 

 

for I won’t tell 

just how much 

you've cast your spell 

 

Stolen moments 

borrowed time 

shared jokes 

happy lines 

 

Thoughts of you 

makes my heart race 

awake and alone 

I imagine your face 

 

With just your presence 

makes me feel anew 

for all I want is 

a moment with you 

 

Each word you sketch 

a perfect reflection 

who can blame those 

that steal your affection 

 

So this game we play 

you lead and I follow 

while with your absence 

makes me feel hollow 

 

Don’t go so soon 

stay for a while 

the stirrings I hide 

are less like my style 

 

Not used to having 

to fight for attention 

I’m much too afraid 

to ask your intention 

 

You may never know 

for I won’t tell 

that it's you alone 

that I have fell
