About the Poem

Have you ever loved someone and didn't have the courage to say it? I certainly have, and I went through a lot. There was a girl who I could never stop thinking about. I wanted to tell her, but whenever I met her, I just couldn't do it. I was afraid of an unpleasant answer. Finally, I told her. It turned out that she was in love with me too. What I learned was: never hide your true feelings.

For Her From Now

For her from now I'll never feel the same.
Her sexy smile, her voice so warm and soft,
Her eyes were sparkling when to me she came,
Her curvy body takes my mind aloft.

She's like a star, bright in my gloomy sky.
Delight she brings and sadness 'way she turns.
For all I wish she'll come to me tonight,
'Cause soon my candle will no longer burn.

I tried to say "I love you" many times.
But boy, I'm too afraid she'll turn me down.
How can I tell her all that's in my mind,
'Cause passion for her love I can't surmount.

But hey, I've got a lot of things to do.
Just fancy will not make my dreams come true.
