What If You Don't?


Do you know what you do to me?

The way your smile lights up my world?

Have you noticed your laugh is contagious?

And that you’re my remedy?


I check my phone constantly,

Because your texts make my day

Even when you have absolutely nothing to say.

Do you do this too?


Do you need me the way I need you?

Do my hugs fill your heart with warmth?

Can you look at me and resist a smile?

Do you want me all the while?


I crave being yours,

And you calling me “mine”,

When you introduce me to your friends

Do you, too, have these dreams?


I do not know,

I don’t have the answers.

For Im afraid to ask,

Because what if you don’t?
