"If you love life, don't waste time, for time is what life is
made up of."

-- Bruce Lee


I say “Hi” each day,
You always smile and reply.
We talk about everything
Except the feelings I hide.

The words I want to say,
Building up in my head,
Of the things I don’t know how to tell
But shouldn’t be left unsaid.

"I love your jet black hair
And yellow skin.
Your cinnamon brown eyes,
And your perfect grin.

"I love your determination
And the muscles in your calf.
Your no-nonsense attitude
And your loud, genuine laugh.

"I love that you’re smart
Without even trying.
The way your lip twitches
Whenever you’re lying.

"I love your seriousness for soccer
And how you play all the time,
How you still look adorable
Covered in grime.

"I love your flirty comments
Used in front of your friends,
And your uncertain nervous expression
When we’re too alone to pretend.

"I love catching you staring
From across the room;
How you act like you don’t notice
That I’m staring too.

"I love that you’re not always
As confident as you seem
That you don’t pretend to be perfect
When you’re talking to me."

There are so many things
That I love about you.
Yet you act like you never noticed
That you affect me like you do.

So all I can do is say “Hi” each day,
Hoping you’ll hear the hidden words.
Because behind the meaningless things I say,
Are the words “I love you.”

This is an edited version of my poem "Without Goodbye". I played with it because it was lacking the feeling I was going for, so here is the new (and hopefully) improved version! Lemme know which one you liked better!
