When I entered my third year
I hadn't in all my life thought
that I would meet a person like you.
A man with the gentlest smile,
so different yet comforting.
You are the kindest of men.
Not just so but strong as well.
Working hard to keep up with the world
and lifting the weight on your shoulders
carrying them with you even as you're here.
I love you more than can ever be told.
Your smile fills me with such warmth
and your very presence causes me distress.
My body shivers with desire,
and I can barely think, when you are near.
Yet no matter how much I love you
I know that you do not love me
You've told me this before and still
I had to believe it was possible
a foolish dream of a desperate man.
Even if we cannot be
I still want you close to me.
A friend at the very least
I know it will never suffice,
but the truth is I can't bear to lose you.
You are a part of me
whether you believe it or not.
I would die without you here.
My star in the night sky
you let me see what I couldn't
So different the world seems now,
So much beauty to behold.
Yet nothing shall ever compare
to the beauty that lie within you,
and I am glad to know you.
