Afraid of being around you.

When my guards are up, 

I see them falling before you.

Yet my poor heart can do nothing but hop,

And I wonder if your heart flutters too.

So scared of being around you

My eyes has hidden, unshed tears,

I have learnt to be strong for me.

My heart is locked up due to fear,

Beneath my beauty is the real me.

Am really fearful of being around you.

I clearly have the hope of loving again,

With the extraordinary way you make me feel.

Now I know all I have lost has been regained,

I hope our love has a permanent seal.

I conquered the fear of being around you.
