Lover's Poem

When I saw you.......
I was afraid to talk to you
When I talked to you.......
I was afraid to hold you

When I hold you......
I was afraid to love you
Now that I love you........
I'm afraid to lose you
Sometimes love hurts......
But if it doesn't hurt........

Then it isn't love..........
Hold on to the person u love........
Before they slip away.........
Or else u can never get them back....
And I died when you left me.....
But I lived for the two months u loved me...
Until there was you.
I cried myself to sleep.

While I had you,
I fell asleep with a gentle smile on my face
Before I lost you,
I worried myself to sleep...
Now that I know u r gone,
I sit up at nite, waiting for u tome come back.
