There he stands, looking as good as he can

By
There he stands, looking as good as he can
He may not think highly of himself
But I think the world of him
I stare too long, wishing he would notice me
My heart screams, wanting him to feel what I feel
Should I tell him, my head says “no:”

Afraid my heart will be torn in two by the simple word “no”
Can I muster up the courage to tell him? No, I can’t! YES, I CAN!
My heart pounding out of my chest! Will he feel how I feel?
Will he deny me loving him for he does not love himself?
I know that I could allow him to love me, for I love me!
No matter what he says, I will still think the world of him!

No matter what he does, I will always love him,
for I love him for him, even if he utters “no”
It’s killing me!
I don’t think I can,
I wish he would render himself
to feel the way that I feel.

Wonder if he feels what I feel?
I have a mental picture of him!
Wonder if he thinks of himself
the way that I do? Don’t think so, no!
Should I tell him? Could I tell him? I can!
I love him for him, but could he love me for me?

“Here I am, love me!”
My heart screams, wanting him to feel what I feel
I think I can, I think I can
tossing, turning, dreaming of walking up to him
it turns into a nightmare he says “no”
he must think TOO highly of himself

he loves himself
I wake myself up from that NIGHTMARE, thinking little of me
My heart won’t give up, it just won’t say NO!
Hope he doesn’t either, hope he feels what I feel
Why do I love him so? Why do I think the world of him?
Why do I doubt my love now? I don’t think I can!

There he stands, looking as good as he can,
Thinking to himself, I walk up to him,
My head says “NO”, my heart believes in me, he feels the way that I feel!
