Unsent Billet-doux

Unladylike though to speak this heart of mine
          for a certain man who makes my day shine.
          I admit I'm just being true to myself
          to this indescribable feeling for you that I felt.

Honestly, you caught my eyes at first sight
          from that moment I wanted no more nights
          only to see you even at a glance
          and know your name if I have the chance.

Man, I don't want you to have hard time to think
          for there are a  lot of girls in this wide space
         "you don't know my name, but you know me by face."
          Before I leave you I want you to know --

"I think of you everyday, now and then
          hoping that we will cross our path again..."
