Look at me

What do you see, when you look at me?
something you want, deep down you know.
If only I could make you see,
This love for you will never go.
If only I could make you smile,
maybe not for long.
For just a little while,
then you’ll realize how I feel is not wrong.

If only you look beyond the outside,
It’s what is in me that wants to show you how.
That I will love you,
If you you stay with me right now.

But if fate does not go my way,
and you choose not to love me.
I will have to wait for another day.
For then the real me you will see.

    Yeah- I have had a very similar encounter myself.. I guess it’s my turn already – poor soul..
