I love you so much, but, I cannot say
the words, for you don’t belong to me
Instead I’m left with hope, and clichés
But even that is not a guarantee.
So I wait in line, with all my patience
Ignoring the imperfections of life
And the stirring emotions of my adolescence
So that no one can sharpen, their sinful knife.
I sacrifice for you, for them for everyone
My love, so you can live out your life, happily
Till the eternal breath of life leaves my dying lungs
I will linger in shadows of the dreams that cannot be
Unless, this is our path, and our destinies will meet
Again someday, perhaps when we are dead, and free.
