How Do I Know?

How can I be sure?

He says he loves me,

but does he truly mean it?

How do I know?

What is love anyway?

Is love the way he holds my hand,

or how he says my name?

Is love the way his smile curves,

or the way he loses his train of thought?

Is love meant for me?

Is it meant for anyone?

How can I be sure?

Do I let him go,

because I know I'm not destined for this?

Or do I keep him forever

like a fairytale?

Help me.

How can I be sure?
