    How do you bring yourself to say something
    You've held in for so long
    I haven't told you before
    Not sure you'd accept my song
    I've held my tongue for many years
    I've had so many fears
    Instead of my tongue, I long to hold you
    I've requested it in my prayers

    This isn't my time for pride
    This is my moment of truth
    I put it all on the table
    I can no longer keep you aloof
    You've lived in my heart
    Since the first day that I met you
    I tried to evict you
    Let you go, but my heart won't let you

    This kinda love
    I swear I never knew
    Not only the one my heart desired
    But also part of the crew
    And let me clear up one thing
    When I said you're one of the fellas
    I only said that because your ex was present
    Didn't want to make him jealous

    But in truth
    All I want is for you to be happy
    I want you to have true love
    Even if it's not with me
    Just your mere presence sometimes
    Makes me feel like a little kid
    I feel you supported me
    In everything that I did

    I even got married
    Man I wished you'd ask me not to
    I figured there's no chance
    But at least as a friend I've got you
    I bet you don't even know
    That i'm talking to you
    But it's true, listen to your heart
    Look at all we've been through

    My God, we've been through ups and downs
    Your relationships, mines
    Sometimes I've seen your heart get broken
    Though I felt it was mine
    I wish that I could see the future
    Queen of my heart you've been
    Upon that fateful day
    Edit you last name to mine to stay

    Until the end of time
    Respect you, never neglect you
    Treat you like a lady
    Hold your hand, I come correct boo
    Ever since I met you
    Others don't appeal to me as much
    No one matches your beauty
    Every day I crave your touch

    This is the poem of my heart
    Like a caged bird, i'm setting it free
    I guess one day I'll tell you in person
    That's the way it should be
    Sometimes I wonder if you ever
    Feel the same for me
    But you don't even know I feel this way
    So how could this be

    I have to say wow too, this was touching beyond belief. To want someone to be happy, even if it's not with you, sounds like true love to me. Great write, so nice to read you again poet.

    to caramelpython

    i was very touched by this poem it made me think about my situation. love is a powerful emotion. until you experience true love,love can make you do things you dont normally do. i know it lead me down to the road of destruction. i just came to grips you cant make the one you love love you. all it does is push them further away. so in closing nice write hope to see more of your writings.
