Till life has me lying on my death bed

You compel me speechless
How I wish you were mine
I am enticed by your demeanor
Infatuated by everything that is you

When the day is over I watch as
The night sky kisses the moon
And then I wallow in self-pity

Poetry has always been a way for me to make my emotions known, but still hidden and "Dare I Say I'm in Love with You" is no exception. And I am just so thankful to God for endowing me with the ability to express myself in a world where it can sometimes be so easy for one to feel misunderstood and unheard on every level. I will also like to express my gratitude to my mom, dad, my sister Wendy, and my two little brothers Ransford and Vidal for always encouraging me to write and to never give up.
