How hard can it be to put a few words together
to let you know
I will love you forever.
But every time I want to my tongue gets tied
and I end up embarrassed
and feel the need to run and hide.
You look at me in puzzlement and must
think it’s strange
yet you still turn up on the next date we arrange.
Maybe you do have strong feelings for me
and have the patience to wait
until my tongue breaks free.
You can tell by my eyes what it is I want to say
and you know you will hear
those words someday.
