You Don’t Have to Love me Back

I love you and I’m not going to fight it

I wish I could say it’s okay that you don’t love me

But it’s not

I’m not okay

I want you to love me back

But I can’t tell your heart to pick me

Yes, I love you

And it’s breaking me to pieces

Knowing you don’t feel the same

You just want me to be happy

I get it so please let me feel this

Let me love you

You don’t have to love me back

I don’t want anything from you

Nothing in return

No promises or lifetime commitments

I’ll carry the blame for breaking my heart

Just let me love you

Because these feelings won’t go away

I’m Afraid to Tell You I Love You

I’m afraid to tell you how I feel

How much I love you

How much I care

So many feelings in my heart

So many emotions I want to let out

What would you do if I did?

What would you do if I said I love you?

I search for words across the room as you stare at me

They hang in the air between us

I’m afraid to tell you how much I love you

I wish I could look up and scan your eyes

I don’t know what you would say if I did

Would you tell me that you love me too?

Or maybe you will not repeat it

My words come out all crooked

My voice lacks sincerity as I ask about your day

I die a little every day when I don’t hear your voice

But I’m afraid to tell you how much I love you

Because I’m not ready to know how you feel

I’m Afraid You’ll Say You Love Me

I want to tell you how I’m feeling right now

But I’m afraid you’ll say you feel the same way

I want to tell you how you complete my day

How you make me feel alive inside

And how much your presence makes me feel like a queen

I’m just afraid you’ll say you feel the same way

I like you. No. I love you.

I know I do. I’ve never felt this strongly about someone

Your heartbeat matches mine

Your smile makes me gaze in awe

You’re more than I could ever ask

I want to tell you all these

I’m just afraid you’ll return the love

No, I’m not ready to tell you I love you

Because I know you’ll say you love me too

I Love You

I’m not perfect at what I do

Neither do I have the courage of a lion

I’ve had enough time to learn this king of beasts

And my zodiac sign says

I share a lot with the Panthera Leo

So let’s skip these cat and dog fights

We both know neither will win

We have lots in common

But what makes us perfect for each other

Are the differences we try to hide

You give my life meaning I bring peace to yours

So whether ‘You’re the light of my life’ sounds a cliché

I’ll use it over and over again

Because you shine bright as day

You make me whole

And my life slows down when you’re not here

I’m tired of spending days without you

Just because my ego refuses to bow to defeat 

You and I are perfect for one another

You can’t have beginnings without endings

Happiness without peace of mind is useless

And you are both of these to me

I love you

And if I have to spend the rest of my life proving it

I’m ready to do it.
