To my love
I do not mind if my love is one-sided,
only please know and remember
in all that you do
there is someone who loves you
and finds you utterly wonderful
no matter what.
This is no head-over-heels early romance,
I am done with my stupid crush on you-
This is love proper
I have had my heart broken by your unknowing of me
-not your fault, and in any case I don't mind
for it has made the love I have rebuilt for you
stronger, wiser and more gracious,
So drink plentifully from Life's brook
and do not be afraid.
I shall be here for you always.
Have you ever noticed how exactly similar we are?
Have you ever noticed how exquisite your voice is?
Have you ever noticed the gentle angel that visits my ear
whenever you laugh?
Never be sad. Smile in your sorrow for my sake.
What you must know
Angelic is your soul
Pure is your heart
Wondrous is your mind
Yet you are timid
And do not think yourself capable
of the one thing within the reach of every human being
which is Love.
I shall have to teach you, as you teach me.
