If only he would ever know,
That I can't fall asleep at night
Because I only think of him, although
To him I am like any other sight.
If only he could once imagine
How much my soul yearns for his one glance,
So burned by lies, it is now ashen
It is afraid to take a chance.
If only he could comprehend
The looks and smiles I send his way
Small things he does that I commend
The pretexts I make so with him I stay.
If only he would notice,
The passion with which I talk to him
Affection in my eyes so endless,
That it wouldn't ever dim.
One day, I'll let him know of this.
And then he might return my glances
But for now I will suspend the bliss,
I will speak in only short, shy phrases.
I will show him that he has the best of friends,
From now until our love impends.
