I Thought You Should Know... - Poem by Mary Joy Lumanog

I thought you should know...
How much your presence means to me...
Despite how much I tried to deny...
The feelings I hide...But then I cannot defy...
The desire to be with you all this time...

I thought you should know...
Your eyes speaks to me
like no one else can do...
It seems like saying you care...
But no courage to tell...

I thought you should know...
From the first time our eyes met...
I know I have this strange feeling...
Maybe the world can't see...
But between you and me...
We're destiny...

Or maybe I'm wrong..
Maybe it's just my imagination...
Maybe a mere fascination...
But I don't know what's gonna come along..
But maybe I thought you should know...
