Do I
by Carla Marie Adair

Do I dare hold this Rose so close to my soul,
Do I dare save this Kiss I want to place?
Do I dare shelter these feelings deep in my heart,
Do I dare hide them, selfishly, until I do part?

Do I dare reach to touch you and watch you pull away,
Do I choke on my feelings and silently walk away?

How do I deal with the feelings I feel?
I want so much to share them with you,
Instead my soul, within, feels so lonely and blue.

You're here in body but... your spirt is gone,
the person you once were seemed to go away,
I do in my heart hope he returns someday.

I miss you so dearly, I just want you near,
the tears that run down my cheek are for only you,
So sweet, so shy, so meek.

So, darling, if you hear my cry just know,
with your heart my soul will go.
