I Wish I Could Say

I wish I could say how beautiful you are

How a smile from you makes my day

And whenever I see you from afar

I keep hoping that you would come my way

I wish I could say how you're one of a kind

The one described in poetry and in song

A diamond, a gem, a rare find

Someone who doesn't just come along

I wish I could say how you've taken me

All of me, my mind and my heart

Thinking of how wonderful it would be

If our story was allowed to start

Alas, I cannot, my lips are sealed tight

Choosing to pretend that everything is fine

I'll just be with you in my dreams at night

To wake up to this truth: you'll never be mine
