If I told you that I loved you, you would probably run a mile

Richard Daish 1949 (DocPenfro)



I wanted to whisper, "I love you",
I wanted to say it - I tried.
I wanted to shout it out loudly,
So I screamed it, in silence, inside.

I wanted to hold you for ever,
I wanted to be by your side.
I wanted to hold you together,
But you cut me, so deeply: I cried.

I wanted to know you much better,
I wanted so hard to explain,
But the words crashed down like a landslide
Through the floods of my bitter-sweet pain.

I know always that I'll love you
You showed me what depths could pertain.
Your love was so sweet and so perfect;
I can never love another again.
