The language of love
in many different ways.
A question asked a certain way.
A phone call late at night,
just to ask how you are.
Flowers out of nowhere.
and takes many shapes.
Just when I think I’ve seen them all,
you show me another.
You are always with me
I carry my cell phone with me in case you call.
The miles that separate us
disappear when I hear your voice,
and I am reminded that
we are not really that far apart.
I put my phone on the table beside my bed,
because you seem closer when it’s there,
and I sleep better.
Sometimes I reach over
and touch the phone…
Love and magic
a lifetime can be a moment.
I smile when I think of all the lifetimes
we have spent together
in such a short time…
Love is free
Did you know?
Please don’t be afraid.
I ask nothing in return.
My love is free.
You are my test
You are my test you know. I want you to be free.
But I’ve fallen in love with you.
It wasn’t supposed to be this way.
But some things we have no control over I guess.
Do I tell you and smother you, and lose you?
Or do I savor the feeling and enjoy you?
I know what I’ll do. I’ll write a little poem for you.
Then you will be part of my life forever.
We will be friends, and you will never know.
I will help you, and learn from you,
and touch you in my dreams.
You are my test. You are my test.
In the shadows of my mind
standing there quietly
in the shadows of my mind.
and I love you so.
If only you were not afraid
and could let me touch you
we could both give each other
something to believe in,
something to cherish silently
the rest of our journey
