Dreams Become Longings - Poem by shalini mascarenhas

I had written this poem long long time back but had never posted it and now am for some reason

Every time I see you I want to love you even more,
I wait when you just call my name
I wish you would know just how I feel about you?
I wonder what is this feeling all about
That’s running in my little restless mind.

Sometimes I wonder what you must be thinking about me
Especially when I send you mails and jokes,
I wait to hear back from you,
And wait to receive a mail from you.

When you talk to me I just like to stare in to your face
I dream about you, do you dream about me?
My head fills with thoughts, of wanting to just
hug you or even just touch you
Do you think this could ever happen?

You and me be friends together forever, you and me?
These are the questions that run through my mind,
Day in and day out, it drives me crazy
Your heart, did find its way into mine.
It drives me crazy as to what I should do,
I want to at times just take a chance and say it to you,
But I would risk a friendship if I did

Should I keep my feelings inside,
Keep them locked up, let them hide?
I just don't know what to do anymore,
My heart it aches, my heart it's sore.
I love you more than you could know,
And I don't want to ever let you go.
So even if I'm just a friend,
I'll always love you until the end.
