The Right to Write

If I had the right
to write
of this unexplainable feeling
that need your healing
would you be here
to dry the tears
I can't say it to you
cause I'm afraid of what you'll do

If I had the right
to write
of what is buried deep within me
you'll know that we were meant to be
but my mouth could not move
I am not sure if Icould prove
of this desire
that burns within me like fire

If I had the right
to write
the words will not be hard to find
I'll say it with my might
tell you the truth
that I really
without a doubt
though it may sound silly, I love you.....
