"I Love Him"

I love him.
He doesn't know it.

I'll always care for him.
He never will know.

He brings a smile to my face.
He smiles back, unaware.

He gives my heart wings to fly.
Why won't he fly with me?

I'll hold him forever.
But only in a reverie.

I'll keep his heart from the cold.
But only if he knows.

I can never tell him.
He will never know.

I will try but fail.
He will never hear the words.

I love him.
I wish he knew.

But I can never tell him.
He can never know.

I won't let him know.
I'll only smile.

And wish he knew.
I love him.
