If Only She Knew
If only she knew,
How I feel inside.
Feelings inside uncomprehended,
Lost deep in the abyss that is me.
Your smiling face truly is a wonder,
But your smiling is it true?
My smile is there for you,
Never riled, just loving,
My dear friend she is,
I wish I could help her cope,
But what can I do alone?
I wish I could promise serenity,
I wish I was peace of mind,
I wish I gave her every emotion,
That deal with the happy kind.
I wish I could heal her wounds,
I want to explain the world.
Give her her eyes,
And make the...
I return to you today,
My flame-topped temptress
Or rather yet, we return
To one another.
My mind, dumbfounded, forgotten,
The sight of you so pleasing.
Your smile, your laugh, your comfort
I'd forgotten until now.
Remind me so well
