Thoughts alone are not enough
To express my deepest love.
So poetic words are simply said
To humbly do it instead.
Feelings bravely expressed
Are absolute at best
For another living soul
Whose world I madly entroll.
Love can find a way
To see the light of day
But i dare not ever be so proud
As to ne’er be the number in the crowd.
If I let her go,
I will feel such immeasurable woe.
But if she is mine to keep,
Tonight, my God, my Lord, I pray, I sleep.
Allow a simple man to dream
What to some may never seem.
Yet becomes the sweetness of his inspiration
And the cause of his infatuation.
Forgive me for what I feel
If it does not seem real.
Understand this man’s ever greater need
And the conscience of his deed.
Heart and soul and mind
Are so hopelessly entwined.
I ask, oh God, who on earth is she
That this kindred spirit can do this to me?
