Why must it be always this way

Why must I wait for the beautiful words that you say

Time I must steal, the mere minutes you give

Though we are apart, in my heart you will live

You have touched my soul the part of me I hide from the light

I tried to keep you out, I tried will all my might

Your words were too sweet penetrating this wall

The words touched too deeply causing me to fall

To believe them would be heaven, a moonlight kiss

My heart is leary though something is amiss

Could it be the beauty or my thought of worth

Could it be that there is something since this relationships birth

Though friends is what we are your words long for love

Could this all be a lie or a gift from above

I will watch from a distance which path will we take

I will stay in the shadows until a decision I can make

Whether I trust in the beauty and give love in the end

For now, I feel lucky to have you as my friend

      Thank you, Tomas. I believe that many time one writes what the heart is thinking but cannot express.
