Read It Anyway

 

I am poor with words,

And frankly money too.

                                              But how could I express so much

                                                              with so little?

But my love,

My sweet,

I’d do just about anything.

                                                  I’d buy the world if I could.

                                                                                                      Write a poem,

                                                                                                      Though,

                                                                                                       Not very good.

                                                           I’d spell it out,

                                                          Bold and proud.

Anything,

If you would come around.

                                                                                                      Say all you need,

                                                                                                      All you want,

                                                                                                      And more.

                                                              I’d tell it all,

                                                   If only to see you laugh.

 

                                                         Even if it’s at me.

                                                                                                      Don’t be scared,

                                                                                                      It won’t hurt.

Your smiling face,

Is all that I see,

 

All that I dream.

 

                                                      I’d never admit why,

                                                              I did it all.

                                                                                                      Maybe,

                                                                                                      There was no reason

                                                                                                      To hold back,

 

                                                                                                      None at all.

I realize,

You’re a wonder,

A treasure to cherish,

                                                                                                      So why hide?

That I know,

                                                       It’s hard to explain,

                                                        But just this once,

                                                                                                       I’ll say it,

                                                            I’ll speak true.

I have never loved anyone,

As much as you.

                                                                For you,

                                                    I'd sacrifice the world.

                                                                                                      Without any doubt.

If only I could say it aloud.

                                                                                                      Yes, I wrote this for you.
