All We Have Is Now

"I love you but you don't have to love me back"
"Why is it you say it like that?"
You are the man of my dreams
Having you in my bed surely seems
Like I'm living a perfect daydream
Oh my smile, it does beam
I never imagined you would be here
Your twinkling eyes reappeared
Your strong arms drawing me near
My night is complete and I'm in bliss
Never going back, I need this
Wrap me in your love so tight
I thank God for this night
But never will I ask of you
To give to me what you can't do
Those other women caused great damage
Tonight I won't use you to my advantage
I'll keep your love locked in my heart
I pray to God we'll never part
The guilt I feel for leaving you
Hurting you again I'll never do
To see you smile and laugh again
Just like my dreams where you've always been
Affection for you I'll never feign
My love for you I won't constrain
So even though you may disdain
My saying "I love you" once again
I won't require you to explain
I'll give your emotions free rein
To do what I consider mundane
And to not say it back to me
But in my heart I'll silently plea
For you to be
No longer in my dreams
