Afraid

a poem by

Kenny Allen

The first time I saw you
   I was afraid to meet you,

the first time I met you,
   I was afraid to know you,

the first time I knew you,
   I was afraid to like you,

the first time I liked you,
   I was afraid to love you,

and now that I love you,
   I’m afraid to lose you.
