I BEG YOU Laban Erapu

   I beg you,
If you feel something like love for me,
Not to let me know it now
When I feel nothing so certain for you-
Wait until you've conquered my pride
By pretending not to care for me.

   I beg you
If you think your eyes will give you away,
Not to give me that longing look
When you know it'll force the moment-
Wait until our heartbeats have settled
Then put your head on my shoulder.

   I beg you
Not to let us surrender to passion
Until our liking has grown to love:
Let's stop and look back,
Let's draw apart and sigh,
Let's say goodbye for the day
And walk our different ways
Without pausing to wait
For an echo to our last word.

   I beg you,
If you find yourself interlocked
In my embrace,
To kiss me and keep me silent 
Before I start making promises
That time may choose to bypass-
Wait until our hands are free,
Then listen to me;
Wait until our love is primed,
Then give me your hand
