When I look into your eyes
I can see the warmth of your soul,
along with the purity of a love
that only god could ever know.
Your spirit shines brighter
than any light I've ever seen,
whenever I am near you
I pray and hope your not a dream.
Your voice like an angel
whispers deep within my ears,
if again I never heard it
I would forever shed tears.
What I wouldn't give for the moment
to hold you tightly in my arms,
if only just to protect you
from a life so full of harms.
But since I'm a person
who's deathly afraid of rejection,
I guess I'll forever hold onto
all of your love and affection.
