I wasn’t brave enough

Because I wasn’t brave enough
that no matter how much I wanted to talk to you about anything,
I can’t,
as words can’t seem to find their way out of my mouth.

Because I wasn’t brave enough
that no matter how much I wanted to ask you what’s wrong,
I can’t,
as my shyness keeps me from getting anywhere near you.

Because I wasn’t brave enough
that no matter how much I wanted to hug you,
I can’t,
as my pounding heart tells my arms to just stay where they belong.

Because I wasn’t brave enough
that no matter how much I wanted to show you how happy I am that you’re here,
I can’t,
as I’m afraid that you’ll notice how I care too much
when you don’t even seem to care at all.

Because I wasn’t brave enough
that no matter how much I wanted to tell you how special you are to me,
I can’t,
as I’m scared that it would change everything between us;
as I’m scared that I would never get to spend some time with you again;
as I’m scared that you would forever be gone.

That is why
no matter how much I wanted to tell you that I love you,
I just can’t.
Because I am scared,
and I am just not brave enough.
