For Yvonne

As Beautiful As Her

FOR YOU,
I WOULD GLADLY WALK A MILE,
IF THAT WOULD GIVE ME A CHANCE
TO SEE YOU SMILE.
I’D CALL YOU MY FRIEND,
BUT THAT’S A LIE.
YOU MEAN MORE TO ME,
BUT I CAN’T EXPLAIN WHY.
FOR YOU ARE MORE PRECIOUS TO ME
THAN ALL OF THE WORLD’S GOLD,
BUT I CAN’T TELL YOU THAT,
HOW CAN I BE THAT BOLD?
IF I SPOKE WHAT’S ON MY MIND,
WOULD YOU ACCEPT ME?
BECAUSE WITHOUT YOU,
I DON’T KNOW WHERE I’D BE.
YOU SEEM TO BE CALM,
WHILE I FEEL ABSOLUTELY LOST.
I WOULD LIKE TO BE SO BOLD,
BUT WHAT WOULD ITS FAILURE COST?
AM I THE ONLY ONE FACED WITH THIS CHOICE?
BE DARING AND RISK LOSING YOU AS A FRIEND TOO?
I CAN’T RISK THAT; I’D RATHER HAVE THAT THEN LOSE EVERYTHING.
WHAT SHOULD I DO?
