Are You There?

By Kelly Elizabeth Miller

Yesterday is already melted away.
There is no way to bring it back.
What makes me feel the way I do?
Lord knows, it must be you!
The only thing I ever see
is your face looking back at me.

All I can do is think of you..
You are there when I go to bed,
you're all wrapped up in my head.

You're there in the middle of the day
and every night....
it is starting to give me a fright!

I can't concentrate in school,
I know I am the one playing the fool!
So here we go, please let's try again,
it's killing me to see you every day
and just be friends.
