Long have I waited here, countless ago.
Is it too much to ask?
Too much to consider, that we could ever be together?
I know, I understand,
That we do belong together.
Do you not see how perfectly our hands fit?
All you have to do is ask.
Ask and I will answer.
I would gladly be yours but now I wonder.
Is there something wrong with me?
Is there somehow an offense against you?
I would give you the world, I would give you my heart.
I could love you, forever and farther.
Why do you evade my love?
I would be yours, and never consider another.
The way things are going though,
The pain you’ve put me through,
I must question myself, how could this end.
Long have I waited here, and forever more.
I cannot love you near,
But my heart is yours and from afar I cry out.
To you! To you I cry out!
My heart is yours,
But I fear yours will never be mine.
