About the Poem

Sometimes we meet someone special. Very special - that we don't ever want to let go. Yet the situation, the timing, make it practically impossible to be more than friends even if you are in love. Still, doesn't love conquer all? Anything is possible if you want it badly enough.

You Ask Me If I Love You

You ask me if I love you
And I don't know what to say
You're my best friend and my lover
The thought that starts each day

You ask me if I'll stay
But deep down I want to run
Though I cannot imagine life without you
You might just be the one

I don't know how to tell you
That I need and want you so
Your kiss, your touch, your eyes, your smile
Are things I can’t let go

But then you ask me if I love you
Those three words I cannot say
I’m afraid to give my love
And lose you anyway

But if you look into my eyes
You’ll know then that it's true
I might not ever say it
But just know friend that I do

It's pretty simple but definitely has a meaning. You can evern relate your self into it coz it's happening to most teeners
