You keep a special place in my heart;
it's sad that we had to be apart.
I'm always blissful when we meet-
but pain-stricken everytime you depart.
You always sweep me off my feet,
for your smile is always so sweet.
Please do not ever go away.
You're the reason for my stray heart beat.
"I'll be here", I say.
I promise you it'll be my way-
of showing you how much I care.
If for your love that's the price I have to pay.
Sometimes pain I cannot bear-
it's like life is never fair.
But I will continue loving you,
even if you belong to another pair.
