Pretending

Pretending

I pretended to read

I pretended to smile

I pretended not to care

when my heart was heavy

when my questions were many

I now can see

hidden tears in my eyes

waiting for you to kiss me

on the cheek to fall

Will you take my hands

and lead the next dance

will you caress me

and stop the shaking of my heart

will you hug me

and fill me with the warmth and the light of love
