don't turnaway
it's not a joke
i'm not saying hi
because you're a familiarface
or a friend of a friend
or a student in my class
a face at thelunch table
no
i say hi because i love you
because every time i seeyou
in the halls, on the street, in my head
i can only imagine
you in myarms, your hand in mine
my eyes on yours
our lips softly touching
for asweet moment ...
but there you are
without a trace
without a hint
ofaffection on your face
not even a wave, a word or a smile
to make mebelieve
just to let me hope
you don't hate me
that you like me
just alittle
at least

just
  don't
    pass
       me
        by
