If You Only Knew! - Poem by Shelby Lanier

I watch you from afar
Thinking of what to say
To get your attention
Which I could never do anyway

You’re in my every thought
And pumping my every breath
To make me long for the time
That I’ll be underneath your chest

I care for you so much
And count the days that we’re apart
That gives me a stronger longing
To love you with all my heart!

When I’m in your arms
(Which i can only dream)
I snuggle and say “I love you! ”
And that I really mean!

…. If you only knew that I felt this
If we were more than just friends
Then nothing would ever come between us
Or make this unfailing love end!

    hmmm... secret lover... how sweet it is if she ever finds out
    or... watch out. she probably has a hunch bigger
    than 767.
