Now, sitting in the safety of my home,
I’m thinking of all I want to tell you.
I have to fit it all in this one poem.
After all that’s happened, what do we do?
I’ll start with ‘this might be quite difficult.’
All my thoughts have to rhyme, ‘A, B, A, B,’
If it doesn’t rhyme quite right, that’s my fault.
‘C, D, C, D, E, F, E, F, G, G.’
I’ll make this message quite short, don’t worry.
As you may see, I’m quite nervous, writing this.
If you never get to read this, I’m sorry.
I just think‘how could I ever be his?’
Just so you know, I’ve known for a long time.
But I think‘how could he ever be mine?’
