I Wish I Could Tell You - Poem by Connie L. Burchett

I wish I could tell you how I really feel
without you wanting to leave.
I just want to show you each and every day
how much you really mean to me
and the way you make me feel
whether you are near or so far away.

Too many years I have felt so alone
and empty that I felt dead inside.
Then I remember the day
that you came into my life
you turned my world upside down
and ignited a fire inside my heart
that I can never put out.
I never dreamed I that could feel
this kind of love inside again.

I look into your eyes
and see all the hurt and pain
that you have been through
and a hollow scar that was left there.
I wanna cry out to you:
Can't you see I can feel it too!
Never having anyone that cared
or that really gave a damn
that you gave and gave
and got nothing in return
accept more heartache and pain.

You gave and gave until there
was nothing left inside
but empitness and sorrow is all you can find.
How stupid and foolish they
must have really been
for they didn't even realize
how lucky they were
for you to be apart of their lives
which I know may never be for me.

Now there are no strings
and no commitments that binds
a void of emptiness
where all the hurt and pain abides.
Now there are no feelings
of any kind left to share
This is what you are telling me.
Can't you see this pain is killing me?

I wish I could tell
you what you really mean to me
and for you to give me just one chance
too take all the hurt and pain away.
I would replace it with my love
and I'd wrap you so tightly in it
that you would never feel a chill again
and I would gladly show you
each and every day the way I really feel.

I pray that one day soon
you can love me too
in the same way
that I have learned to love you.
Then I will shout it from the roof tops
so the whole world can hear me yell;

Your warm, gentle touch
and the little things that you do
shows me how much you really care
and how much I mean to you.
I think you must be reading my mind
and the unspoken thoughts that I have about you
but then you turn and you pull away
leaving me completely Mystified!
