Deep in my dreams you hold me so near
But in real life, it's all much too clear.
You are just a boy hardly knowing my name.
Not knowing of the love that awaits your claim.
If you could love me as I do you.
A love that we could have, so strong and so true.
So next time I see you and our eyes meet,
Think of the ache in my heart so deep.
Because of this aching I feel down inside
I write you a poem of the feelings I hide.
