Sonnet 1 - Love Unknown - Poem by Alex Walker
You take my breath when you smile,
you stop my heart when you look my way.
I've felt this way for a while,
but still there is not a word I can say.
When you look, you don't look for me,
and when you smile, it's for another reason.
I'm alone in this, that I can see,
and for us to be together would be like treason.
I can hope and I can pray,
and I can wish on every shining star,
but i already know as I wait for the day,
that it is beyond too far.
Love afraid, love unknown,
has no hopes of being, if it is not shown.
