How Do I Put You To Words - Poem by Charles Tomar

hah,3 months later i felt compeltely different....ah youth

How do I put you to words?
How do I say what I want to say?
I’ve never felt like this before
I’ve never quite felt this way

I never believed I would be changed
I thought I’d go on as I had before
I thought you were great, but I would go on
But I know that I need now for sure

(Chorus) (You’re a song waiting to happen
Bursting from within
I feel it over and over again
Do you like the romance novel you’re livin’ in?

You’ll never know just what you’ve done
You’re what I’ve wanted to find
You’ve become apart of me, second to none
And yet I’m yours but you are not mine)

As the days go by I think of you
I think of your smile and it breaks my heart
In everything I say and do
I feel the pain when we are apart

You’ve asked me to put you down on paper
That’s become impossible to do
I guess the only way to say what I mean
Is simply I love you


It may never come to be
What I wish upon a star at night
But I know you’ve become a part of me
You are my source of light

You can’t take away what we’ve gained
You may be the charmer
But for what it’s worth duchess
I’ll always be your knight in shining armor


You cannot leave, it’s too late for that
Now together we must stand
I don’t know what lies ahead
But I’ll be OK if you just hold my hand
