when I have something to tell you,
I hesitate - and wonder...
just how much of my feelings
I should allow to be seen,
and how you'll react to my words.

I know that I shouldn't be afraid
to tell you anything...
I'm still sort of new
at being in this situation,
and I feel a little uneasy about
saying just whatever's on my mind.
But you know, don't you...
of my feelings for you,
whether they are spoken or not...
And my desire to open up to you
with trust
and with love.
