It is only when I am with you
that I have peace of mind.
It is only now a question
of when, if ever, will I meet you?
I see you, now, everyday,
yet I shall remain hidden from you.
How many others feel the same?
Though this thought occurs,
every time I look into your eyes
I cannot ever turn my heart from you.
I fear that this is how it will always be,
alone and longing for a man I will never know.
