I wish I could have you near me,
I wish I could caress your hair;
I wish I could kiss your forehead;
I wish I could love you near.
In silence I dream my dreams;
Unwithered, unrelented, in peace.
This silent longing is all I have
Please, please don’t take this away!
I wonder how and why I faltered.
What led my dreams to shatter?
Wasn’t it enough to just love?
And wish to be loved back?
All these I realize now-
My foolish silent dreams.
