The Surrender

Posted by kristenwillms@knights.ucf.edu on February 12, 2018 at 12:40 AM

You stand in your world

And I stand in mine

Separated completely

By the dotted line

 

I watch you on your side

Loving you, feeling alone

I cannot turn to another

For I love you only


Wondering if you could love me

Being so different from you

As I see you pass on by

I can't figure out what to do


If opposites were meant to attract

Then you are my perfect mate

Yet we stand apart from each other

As if it were some cruel trick of fate


I should give you up

Let you go on your way

But it's hard to let you go

And find the right things to say


-Good-bye love

I'll set myself free

Hoping for the day

You'll come to me
