Do I Love You?-My Daughters Poetry

Do I Love You?

Do I love you?
I dont know
Do I love you?
I'm so confused
I have never been in love
So how would I know?
This feelin' I have for you
I cant explain and cant let go
No one else can come close
When I'm with you I get so quiet,
I dont even know why
Maybe its because you take my breathe away
The second I leave you,
I get so confused
When we seem to part and you are out of my sight
I start to miss you
When I talk to you on the phone,
Your voice makes me melt
The sad part is that officially your not even mine
But I could care less about them other girls
They mean nothing to me
I've known you for so long, almost all my life
I should be over this feelin' that I feel for you
But I'm not, it just gets stronger
And I am scared
I'm scared to open up to you
Cuz I'm scared to love
But most importantly I am scared to love you
And I dont know why
I know you told me you would never do me wrong
And thats what I am scared of
I am scared because I know you would never hurt me
That terrifies me
Do I love you?
I'm not sure
Do I love you?
I think I do
But now the question is how do I show you?
And what would you think?

Shadows of You

I sit and wait by the phone,
Day and night
Just to hear your special ringtone,
That I will never recieve
I miss your company
Can we atleast be friends?
Where is your sympathy?
Is it even there?

I still hear your voice in my head
As I sit and lay in my bed,
The same place where, before
Many messages from you were read
Shadows of you raoming around in my head

I dont want you back
I just want your friendship
Which is what we lack
Like we had before
I sometimes wish I could
Go back in the past
And make our relationship last
But until then
Shadows of you are roaming around in my head

That is very good. I feel like a teenager again reading it and remembering how it was.

Steve E said...

I remember very well, my first "poem". Age 6. And BTW, it did NOT rhyme--grin! So I got a "D".

Times, they DO change. Real talent there in your daughter, in her thinking, and her communication skills! I hope she has guidance to match her talent.
