Your Heart Is Just as Lovely as Your Face


Your heart is just as lovely as your face.

I can't believe you ever could love me.

Gifted with a more than human grace,

You're meant for some more noble destiny.

I watch you from the sidelines in a dream

That never can come true. Yet nonetheless,

My heart is happier than it might seem:

I shiver in the warmth of your caress.

I may not be the mirror for your eyes,

But fortune has been decent, on the whole.

I cannot know your heart or hear your cries,

But love for you illuminates my soul.

My looks have made me shy, so please take this

As it is meant: an unrequited kiss.
