I sat next to you against the wall of the gym,
You were doing you're homework
And I was unsure
If I should ask you 'The Question',
Or to hold my tongue for just a little while more.
But I swallowed my fear
Because I couldn't turn back now,
I figured that it was now or never,
I realized as I took a long, steady breath,
In.... and slowly out.
I turned toward you and finally asked
'Do you like me? '
And I waited silently,
Hoping for a 'yes'.
You stopped what you were doing
And held very still,
And not looking at me either....
Or were you?
You tilted your head back,
Then closed your eyes
As you tried to avoid my hopeful stare
And my watering eyes.
That's when you spoke
And broke the silence
With three little words
That could've killed me.
'I don't know, ' you said,
Making me confused.
'It's confusing, ' I said, agreeing with you,
Still stumped on whether you loved me true.
Now here I am,
Depressing and obsessing
About my intense love for you,
Not knowing what's next for us,
Or what I should do.
But whatever happens,
I just want you to know
That you are the only person
Who can make me smile,
Who can make my day by just
Staring at me for a while...
You make me feel happy,
And maybe it's true
That maybe I make you smile, too.
That maybe I make you feel wanted and true,
That maybe I'm loved by you.
