Letters Unsent; Words Unspoken

Do you know you light up the room?
You make my heart go boom, boom, boom.
Are you aware that you make me smile?
Time with you is so worth while.
Can you tell that I magnetize towards you?
Maybe one day, you will feel that way too.

But you won't hear it from me,
My pride just won't let me be.
And the fear that I'm just a friend,
Will accompany me until the end.

So let me go on protecting my fragile heart.
I won't let you break it, don't tear it apart.
For now, just let me stay by your side,
And this secret I will cleverly hide.
Until I have the courage to be open,
I'll leave letters unsent, and words unspoken.
