A Poem to his Fair Lady
I've got to remember you're 'just a friend'
Or my breaking heart will never mend,
I feel so lost, alone and sad
And the pain of it will drive me mad,
I can't go on with this pretence
Or act with simple common sense,
Though I know it will only drive you away
If I beg too much for you to stay!
