008 A Poem to a Lover [23 February 1995]

Dear Derek,
You rise with the sun,
Your smile so bright.
You know that you are,
You know I am right.

You are my sun,
You are my rain.
You make me smile,
You ease my pain.

I know you well,
Yet I know you not.
For you live freely,
And will never be caught.

I want to love you,
But I don’t know how.
The feeling so strong,
It urges for now.

What do you do?
To make me feel this way.
I think of you,
Every single day.

I want you to know,
Who loves you.
But I cannot tell you
Because of the truth.

I am someone you know
But I must remain anonymous.
It’s the best for now.
For the both of us.

If I can’t be your lover,
Then I’ll just be your friend.
Forever and always,
Until the end.
