Too Scared to Ask
I’m not going t tell you how much I care.
I’m going to keep it to myself,
too scared to lose you,
too scared that I’m pushing you away.
You’ve become such a big part of my life.
You’re my best friend.
The one I can go to for anything.
For a laugh.
For a smile.
For a shoulder to cry on.
I can’t get you out of my head
no matter how hard I try.
My heart aches at the thought of you not in my life.
Every time I want to tell you this though I can’t help but worry if I’ll scare you away.
I don’t know if I’ve fallen in love with you but I do love you.
I do care about you.
I don’t ever want you to leave my life.
But I can’t say all of this to you
because that means moving too fast.
That means getting too attached.
So for now I’ll just keep my mouth shut.
I’ll stay quiet and hope that you feel the same.
But I’m too scared to ask…
