As you write a note for her,
I drown in a flood of longing.
But I damn the water up
To save you from my pain.
I want to be your friend
And help in your times of need.
But I loose myself in thought
Of the feelings I have for you.
My love is not of lust.
It is truth, honesty, and respect.
My desire is not for plasure.
It is for the happiness I feel with you.
But if my joy should bring you pain
With your words I will willingly go,
And hope that you will find happiness
In a future of love and peace.
