I am afraid.
Of promises made, and then broken due to neglect and selfishness. Of unmet expectations and subsequent disappointment. Of feelings of insecurity. Of jealousy. Of days wasted on daydreaming away the distance. Of obligation. Of imprisonment. Of over-stepping boundaries, going beyond my comfort zone. Of unrequited love.
Yet, I look forward to the moment.
In the words of Victor Young and Edward Heyman,
When I fall in love
It will be forever
Or I’ll never fall in love
In a restless world
Like this is
Love is ended before it’s begun
And too many
Seem to cool in the warmth of the sun
When I give my heart
I give it completely
Or I’ll never give my heart
And the moment I can feel that you feel that way too
Is when I fall in love with you.
