Tell me clearly
How you feel
Let me know
If it's really real
Tell me outright
What's the deal
But as you do
Don't tell me NO.

This confusion
Confusing me
Making me wonder
What's meant to be
Trying to figure out
When 'I' will be 'we'
But all the time hoping
It will never be NEVER.

So, what is it
Where do we go
I'm seeking an answer
I need to know
What do we have here
Will it grow
Please respond
But please don't say NO.
