I see you pass by and often it’s not accidental,
I purposely wait until you come along and yes, it’s not coincidental.
But I’m not the only one crushing on you,
Others go out of their way for you too.
You’re well admired for your character and charm,
And that smile! Oh, makes me feel warm.
So as you go on with your routine,
I wait for you to swing by while I sip some caffeine.
He was just a phase.
Much like the moon with its different phases
He came and stayed on my sky for a bit
Enough to inspire
Enough for me to want and fall in love with.
And like the moon
He disappeared one day
And slowly too did my desire for him.
He was just a phase
A lesson I had to learn the hard way
But a lesson learned, nonetheless.
“I love you” is a simple word
But greatly abused
Greatly over used
Mostly taken advantaged of
And often forgotten.
And so I say to all those who need to hear this,
Remember these words
I love you
Everything is wonderful and magical in the eyes of an innocent child.
The world is fun to explore and you just want to jump and run wild!
Curious of many things, everywhere you turn is whimsical.
In awe with a lot of things that seem astronomical.
You see beauty through your innocent eyes.
As for me, you are the beauty and it’s no surprise.
Maybe on a different lifetime
I’ll be the one to fall in love with you first
Maybe then, I’ll be the one to pursue you
And maybe, maybe then we could be together
Accept this love that I give
I give this freely to you
No ifs or but
Just hold out your hand
Accept this love
And keep it on your pockets
Save them for those rainy days
Edgar wrote of Annabel Lee
Who lived in the kingdom by the sea.
I’d also like to write poetry
About my love to thee.
But feelings are hard to put into words.
How can I make it sweet like the chirping of the birds?
What sort of rhyme must I write
To let your emotions ignite?
Still, ideas escape me
Unlike Edgar who wrote about Annabel Lee.
My paper is still empty
And I still contemplate of that poetry
One that I’ll dedicate to thee.
I kept my heart locked, but not for the reasons that many think
I kept it lock so the right key may open it someday.
I want to tell you something
Tell you that your smile is captivating.
But how can I say this out loud?
I can’t handle this crowd.
I get nervous just being near you
I know that’s nothing new.
But I wish I didn’t stumble around you
I wish I knew what to do.
Still, everytime I try to convey what I feel inside
My words get lost, then I start to slur and get tongue tied.
So when you ask, I just smiled
Because I would rather be silent and hide
Than to try and speak and again get tongue tied.
And when I saw you
You left me in awe
My heart ran off
They tried to resuscitate me
But I have flatlined just from the sight of you
