I Couldn't

I was going to write you something beautiful
something to describe the way I feel about you
what you do to me
and I sat here with my pencil poised above the paper
and my mind was blank
I couldn’t think of the words to describe
the equation, the paradox that is you

I couldn’t fathom the words to describe
how when I see you
my heart jumps and my mind races and my body hums
all because I see you, you’re there
you’re finally there

I couldn’t bring myself to explain
how I sometimes wonder if you’re nothing more than a
dream - a beautiful figment of my imagination
Did I dream you up darling?
Am I asleep?

I couldn’t begin to imagine
how to explain
that when you touch me, your skin against mine
every thought is driven from my mind
you’re all I can feel, all I can see
the only person, only thing
whose existence matters to me

I wasn’t able to dream up the words
to properly explain to you
how much love my heart - my soul - holds for you
how that kiss stole the breath from my lips
and your voice quiets the demons in my mind

I guess there’s really only one thing
one simple little phrase that I can say
to properly explain how I feel about you
because there is no hope of me untangling my feelings
and stringing them into words
not where you’re concerned

I guess what I want to say
Is no matter where you are or
what you go through
just remember
I love you
