How Much Do I Love You - Poem by Maia Padua

How much do you love me?
Your question makes me stare blankly
Trying to search inside me..I think deeply
How much do I love you?
I LOVE YOU but how am I gonna answer you?
You need to hear more than that, I know.

I love you beyond words
I love you beyond thoughts
I love you beyond feelings could feel
I love you enough to wish the time would stand still.

How much do I love you?
I love you until I have love to give
I love you enough to sacrifice myself
Sacrifice the feelings that I felt
I love you enough to set you free
Accept the reality that we are not meant to be.

I love you enough to shed tears of sadness
But accept things without regrets and bitterness
Because destiny tells there can never be us
We cannot live our lives together
We cannot go on living like this forever.

A painful truth I have to accept
A painful decision I have to make
It hurts and it will squeeze my heart
But in my memory you always be a part.

The time you will read this, I'm already away
Away from your sight, leaving behind memories
Memories of you and me, in our own world of fantasies
I cannot tell you personally
So I have decided to write it into poetry.
