I Want You More and More

“Every time I see you,
I want you more and more.
Every time you say, “Hi” to me,
my heart begins to soar.

Every time you touch me,
I pinch myself to see if I’m awake.
Every time you look into my eyes,
it’s my heart you begin to take.
Every time I see you smile,
I wish that it was at me.

Every time I hear your voice
I regret that ‘we’ just could not be.
For the truth is… she likes you
so, I must take a seat.
For she has feelings deeper
than mine could never beat.
For since we are good friends,
I could never take you away.
So, I will look at you with a tear in my eye
hoping for the day…
When I can hold you by my side,
and my deepest feelings
I won’t have to hide”
