“I’m sorry I waited so long,

I’m sorry I was so unsure….I couldn’t find the guts

and the correct words were missing along with them”


I find myself hating words

for they are simply not enough

something wells up inside

some call it love


maybe some say pride


but the frustration, I can’t contain it

for I have no ability to name it

there’s no word in any language

I can use to describe

this emotion, this explosion

that I simply cannot hide


I can only hope to place these arms of mine

around you

pull you near, kiss your lips

and gaze into those brown eyes

wanting you to see

what I have inside mine


as you’re looking from above

I can only dream what you see

is stronger than the word “love”
