If You Don’t…
If you don’t hear, “You’re beautiful,”
No amount of silence will deny that fact.
If you don’t hear, “I long for you,”
Far too many lesser truths have invaded life.
If you don’t hear, “I adore you,”
Words must have forsaken their power of expression.
If you don’t hear, “I miss you,”
The sea of separated time has drowned the voice that cries out to you.
If you don’t hear, “I value your wisdom,”
Remiss am I at conveying my admiration of who you are.
If you don’t hear, “I love you,”
The only explanation at hand is your five senses have been denied you.
Have I mentioned this day that you are beautiful?
That I long for our eyes to waltz?
That I adore each and every facet of personality that defines you?
That I miss you in all the moments we are apart?
That your voice sings in my heart?
That I love you from depths of soul I never knew existed?
If not, I am truly bankrupt in expressing myself…
