Elephant in the Room

Seeing the way things have changed
Makes me feel a bit strange
Are we coming or going
Or are we just playing the game?
I picture the day in my mind
When you say you love me
Leaving all worries behind
The day you put a ring on my finger
And ask me to be yours forever
On the outside, I'm quite optimistic
But deep down I'm frightened to death
I find that I don't know how to behave
Not wanting to push you away
When all I want to do is take you into my arms
And protect you from all harm
Yet, there is little that I can do
But sit and wait patiently for you
And though these words may never reach you
I rip out my heart and wear it on my sleeve
For only you to see.
