I know not of this feeling, that dwells inside my breast This bittersweet sensation that will not let me rest. It started with a smile you threw one day when you passed by And lingers long beyond that time, and I'm not sure why I know a lot of girls but never have I felt like this Never have I fantasized about a single kiss Of course I know it cannot be, we live two different lives Yours where wishes always grow, while mine fight to survive The paths we walk are not the same, destined not to meet The dreams I carry in my heart will never be complete I'm sure that I'll get over you, forget what could have been And wonder what it would be like, to be sixteen again

    Nothing is more tender than those first feelings of love, unforgettable and beautiful, and sad, all in a memory that lasts a lifetime. Beautiful poem, Bob!
