I Love You


So many words scurrying through my head
So many words that remain unsaid,
Fanciful words, not making any sense,
Words unsaid that make me so tense.

How do I put them into a rhyme,
How do I declare them...right at this time?
Fanciful, Perfect, just what you want to hear,
Words with the power to make you feel dear.

Declaring, in statement, just how I feel,
Letting you know that my feelings are real.
So, when you read this, read between the lines
And you might untangle the unreadable signs,

Of feelings unmentioned..of feelings unsaid
So read over the words you've already read,
Denied or unmentioned...the feelings are real
So read over know how I feel! ! ! ! ! ! !

I Love You! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
