April Swanson (May 24,1991)
Words just can’t express
how much you mean to me.
Sometimes it's hard for me to show it,
so you may not always see.
I'm afraid that I'm falling for you,
My heart has hit the floor.
I hate to be without you,
It makes me want you more.
I love it when you hold me,
And look into my eyes.
I love to feel your body,
When it's pressed against mine.
Every time I'm with you,
There's a constant smile on my face.
The piece missing from my heart,
You have somehow replaced.
I want to tell you,
How I really feel.
But I find it hard to admit,
That this is all so real.
You know that I care about you,
But you don't know how much.
I find myself falling in love,
With someone I feel I can trust.
I don't want to scare you away,
I just wanted you to know.
The way I feel about you,
As it continues to grow.
Once again I am risking my heart,
In hopes that you feel the same.
But if you don't, let me know,
So I can deal with the pain.
I think of you quite often
more than you'll ever know.
I don’t want to hide it,
but I can’t always let it show.
Although you might never know this,
everything I say is true.
Although I'll probably never always let it show,
I'm frantically falling in love with you.
