Separated by Love

A thousand times I think of you as I go about my day
I know I should put you out of my mind completely
But I can't, you're a part of me
Though we can never be together
Too many people would be hurt by our union
And so it will never be
But the feelings live on
The love, the need, the desire
The memories of times together
The dreams of what could be, but will never be
It would be so easy to give in to the longing
But could we live with ourselves afterwards
I know we could not
We are fated to love each other, but never to have each
And though it hurts my heart, I will never rue this love
To have been blessed to feel it is enough
It will have to be enough
And I will hold it close to my heart forever
