Stealing Time - Poem by John Paul Ang

I was condemned for stealing time,
I did not know that it was a crime.
I only wanted to be there with you,
I only needed to say that i love you.

I could not forget what had transpired,
You're the only one my heart admired.
Yet this world kept us apart,
Invisible and away from my heart.

I waited too long for a chance,
I wasted an eternity for a glance.
I knew that fate would be too cruel,
Yet i still played the part of a fool.

To love you is to live my life on hope,
Revelling in time makes it too hard to
I'd give up my unneccessary freedom,
just to give you a warm welcome.

If i am bound to this fate,
Then I'd gladly surrender my hate.
If only i could be with you,
Then my wishes could all come true.
