Tell me my friend
The reason for this trend
You have lately acquired
Do answer as I inquire.

We are best of friends as you well know,
We laugh and cry together
We frown at and cheer each other
So tell me, why this?

How do I love you deeper?
And still be your hearts best keeper?
When all I know how to do
Is to love you this way.

Again you know why I scare
After he left my heart and hands bare,
Having searched for cure everywhere.
Till you came along and I knew
Not all men are identical

Keep treating me tenderly,
Keep lighting the candle of hope,
Of love and trust.
Then, just may be
When I get warm enough
I wil get to love you deeper.
