I know with all my heart ~ the best for me is you,
although I don’t admit it, deep inside I know it is true.
I’m afraid of the feelings I have for you ~ they’re growing everyday,
At times I’d like to run and hide and escape the easy way.
The gentleness of your ways ~ the kindness that pours from your heart,
makes me want to stay around, and in your life be a vital part.
The patience you have shown is more than anyone should ask,
just dealing with me daily can be quite an exhausting task.
That’s why it’s very clear that the best for me is you,
I anticipate much happiness and all the things we have yet to do.
