I'd love to say
You look pretty today,
But since I'm not that way
I'll just fade away.

With you I'd walk
And forever make talk,
But since I'm not that way
I'll just fade away.

Maybe you'd know
If I could just say Hello,
But since I'm not that way
I'll just fade away.

I'll just fade
But forever I'll wade
Through this gloomy fog
And lonely smog
Because if it clears
Before the end of my years
I'll let you finally see
How much you mean to me.

But no, I will never be that way
To set aside my fears and say I love you today,
So I'll keep on wading through the stifling abyss
Dreaming, dreaming of that liberating kiss.

You are very talented, the structure and message of the poem are very good. I hope you get brave enough to tell her soon, it could really turn out well.
