You don't have to tell me how you feel.
I'd just as soon accept your silent smile.
Expressing feelings doesn't make them real,
And I'm content to wait for you a while.
But even still, you took my breath away,
When you expressed the thought I only dreamed.
I couldn't fathom what you had to say,
That you could somehow fall in love with me.
I could have waited any length of time
To hear you tell me what I longed to hear,
But in the context of a simple rhyme,
I almost found myself succumbed to tears.
And instantly my heart was lost to you,
Your tears will drench my heart forevermore,
And suddenly the world I thought I knew,
Seems newer than it ever has before.
