A poem comes from deep within me.
I put it on paper for all to see.
I show it to all who are dear,
And read it aloud so that they might hear.
I do this all in bravery,
Conquering the stage fright and fear.
I carry it with me like a child who sleeps,
Then put it away hoping that it will keep.
I'll bring it out, these words on paper,
Like a gift or reward or a party favor.
Before these words can fully steep,
I will sip upon their worldly flavor.
Even though it's premature
I know the words; They will endure.
You're so pretty when you laugh,
You're so pretty when you cry,
You're so pretty when you look
Into my tear-soaked eyes.
Now you're half of what I am,
So I'm twice what I once was.
I can face my stormy days
'Cuz it's you I'm thinking of.
I'm so stuck here in your web.
I'm so glad that I am caught.
I'd live or die for you
Without a second thought.
You're the one who matters most,
So you're always on my mind.
You've been so good to me
When others were so unkind.
So how do I deserve this?
This feeling that I have felt?
In my heart an ice resides,
So how did you make it melt?
Right now I'm so alive,
So how long did that take?
So now I feel this passion
As my soul becomes awake.
I'm so scared to be alone,
I need you to be around.
So desperate without you. . .
I can't lose what I have found!
You're where I've put my hopes at. . .
So, yes, I've thought this through.
My life changed when we first met.
So I think that yours did, too.
I'm at my best when you're near--
That's something you should know.
So will we be together?
I know that it will be so!
