I Could

by joetwo

I could tell you you’re beautiful

That your smile lights my life

That your eyes always see me

But you won’t listen


I could write you a sonnet

Describing the depths of my feelings

About how much you mean to me

But you will never read it


I could paint you a picture

Of you as a goddess

The perfect being I know you to be

But you will never see it


I could sing you a song

A song from the heart

Asking you to be mine

But you will never hear it


I could do all of these things

I could put my heart and soul into them

But it will do no good

For you are with another

And happier than you could ever be with me

so that is how things will stay
