361 I Will Not Say I Love You [17 December 2000]

I feel a change deep inside
whenever I hear your voice reach me
from across the world.
You have touched me
in ways I can’t explain.
Because of you I feel different.
As morning light invades my slumber,
your name slips past my lips
at least a dozen times per day,
and the very thought of you,
invades my mind ten times that.
I have never seen your face,
nor touched your hand,
but I know you.
I know I will know you
when we meet for the first time.
I love to make you laugh,
to hear it burst past your lips.
I will not say I love you until I am certain,
without a doubt and you stand in front of me.
So many things make me think of you,
so many songs have me wanting you,
here with me.
I know you don’t dance
but I know I’ll make you slow dance in the rain
It’s easy enough.
I’ve said more than I should,
baring my soul to you,
leaving me vulnerable to a hurt
more than I’ve felt before.
I feel you next to me,
sleeping at night yet you’re not there,
though one day I know you will be.
