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.
The life you lived was exciting
Your energy was fascinating.
Your voice was one of a kind
Not easily duplicated, not easy to find.
And then there were the sad times
The lows came like waves
You struggled, didn’t you?
Despite everything, you felt lonely still.
But you found your way
Before you went away
And even when it’s been many years since,
The memory of you will live forever.
And still sometimes, just out of the blue
I write a poem just for you
I wanted to write something for you
I wanted to, just so you’d know.
But I can’t find the right words to say
I choke and I’m dismayed.
But I’ll keep trying like before
Because you are worth writing for.
It’s my song, it’s our song
The song you dedicated to me
That will forever be ours
No matter what, I cherish that in my heart
I am grateful for the little attention
It may have been nothing to you
But it meant forever to me
I am not expecting anything, I’ve learned
But no one and nothing can ever take away what I have come to call our theme song
If I could speak of words lovely and true
They would be dedicated to you
I’d write of it and sing of it
But it will be all a secret
For you are too precious to me
And the whole world doesn’t have to know or see
That song you sang
You sang it in front of the gang
Dedicated it to me
Set my heart free
I call it my own now
Oh how I want to go back to that moment somehow
Make it real, I’m waiting here
As I hold on to that song so dear
It’s the one I will keep for the rest of my life
My pick me up in times of strife
Sing that song to me again
My happy heart is once more regained
I hold on that song
It’s where you and I belong
Once more dedicate it to me
Because I want us to be
That’s why I wait here to see
