Let It Be Captured - Poem by Pete O'H

i could spend forever with you
all other things would fail to matter
with you for all of life and after
but 1000 years to spend with you, are not enough;
it cannot be captured

i could stare at you forever
into the infinity of your eyes, the endless patterns
i could try to write, to describe your eyes in words, and these patterns
but 1000 words would never suffice
it cannot be captured

i could talk with you forever
to your sweet, innocent voice, mine heart doth shatter
tell me your life, all you have seen, and all you will see, hereafter
but with knowledge i hold, mine heart doth grow sadder
for 1000 pictures that your eyes capture, will not be enough
it cannot be captured

i could try to tell my love for you
but indeed it is forever; to be my wife, i need not ask her
a neverending road; perpetual laughter
it is a song of forever, in an infinite concert hall with a ceiling of no rafters
and in 1000 songs, i cannot express my love for you
it cannot be captured
