If you only knew how much I loved you.

If you only knew how much I cared.

You are my second self.

By your side is where I long to be.

If you only knew how much I miss

The way your smile lights up the room.

The tingling feeling it gives my skin

Spreading warmth all the way through me.

If you only knew how much I love

All the funny little things you do.

Like leaving mugs of tea sitting on my desk

And forgetting that you made them.

If you only knew how much I miss

Lying curled up in your arms.

Feeling safe and protected,

Like I could never come to harm.

If you only knew how much I love

The terrible jokes you tell.

You always know how to make me laugh,

Forgetting everything else that matters.

If you only knew how much I miss

The way you look at me.

Making me feel so beautiful

In a way that only you can achieve.

If you only knew how much I loved you.

If you only knew how much I cared.

If you only knew how I count the hours

Until I can see your smiling face again.
