I want to be with you
but this choice would only sadden
both of us.
You yearn to be a free bird
that soars above them all,
I would only tie you down to a cage
and prevent you from freedom.
I can't be with you this way-
won't I be lonely and sad as well?
Do I have to sacrifice to this extent
because of love?
What if one day I really would
force you to be with me?
You would definitely hate me
and cut off all friendship with me,
if there was even one.
But because I love you,
and that you should know,
I would never hurt you.
