For you,
I would gladly walk a mile,
if that would give me a chance
to see you smile.

I'd call you my friend,
but that's a lie.
You mean more to me,
but I can't explain why.

For you are more precious to me
than all of the world's gold,
but I can't tell you that,
how can I be that bold?

If I spoke what's on my mind,
would you accept me?
Because without you,
I don't know where I'd be.

You seem to be calm,
while I feel absolutely lost.
I would like to be so bold,
but what would its failure cost?

Am I the only one faced with this choice?
Be daring and risk losing you as a friend too?
I can't risk that; I'd rather have that then lose everything.
What should I do?

Quoting smudge1098:


For you,
I would gladly walk a mile,
(Now why the heck 1 mile?! Only one??? 1mile/smile???:-S)
if that would give me a chance
to see you smile.
(If she smiles him 20 times? )


[...]
but I can't explain why.
(well, better have an IQ test done...)

For you are more precious to me
than all of the world's gold,
(Did you ever heard of diamonds, pearls, at least? )
[...]
how can I be that bold?
(no comment... )

If I spoke what's on my mind,
would you accept me?
(... let me give it a thought,dudu)
Because without you,
I don't know where I'd be.
(at the kindergarten, most likely ...)

You seem to be calm,
(Just watch me better... )
while I feel absolutely lost.
(no wonder...)
I would like to be so bold,
but what would its failure cost?
(:-S )

[...]
What should I do?
(for start... )



Sorry... i like poetry...
