Loving You

(Dedicated to the one who didn't deserve my love, yet managed to capture it anyway)

How much longer must I love you in vain?
How much longer must I hide the true desires of my heart?
For I love not to please my own desires
The moment you stole my heart
I gave up all regard for self
I no longer thought of me without you
You turned my hell into heaven
My heart knew no peace until it found you
I'll wait as long as I have too
for my soul refuses to find another
I've found my everything in you
Just tell me how much longer must I love in vain
