Tonight I looked in your eyes
I just saw what I’d been
suspecting all this while.
All this while, I’ve been praying
and from what I saw
I know those prayers have been answered.
Looking into your eyes
got me scared, thoughts racing
nerves freezing, mood chilling
Unbelievably, I am afraid to love
afraid to open up myself to you
scared of being hurt, scared of being loved.
“It’s better to have loved and lost
than not to have loved at all”
This proverb I recite to myself
all day and all night
as I try to come to terms with reality
but then I can’t help but have doubts.
Its so ironical that I should feel this way
after how much I prayed for it
and for how long I’ve wanted you.
I look at your eyes again, I see you’re scared too;
Scared of being hurt, scared of being loved.
Please don’t be afraid, I love you.
