Words Are Not Enough


Words are not enough to tell you how I feel

So many thoughts inside that are so very real

Consume me with emotion that I cannot convey

Limited as I am with the words I wish to say


Words are not enough to show the love inside

Of this woman’s heart I no longer want to hide

The secrets of my soul that play a symphony

At the very thought of you lying close to me


Words are not enough to express the emptiness

As I reach out for you I ache for just one kiss

A touch to comfort me from years of my despair

I’m reaching out for you as you are waiting there


Words are not enough to exemplify my longing

To be safe within your arms where I am belonging

Reposing there upon the heartbeat of your chest

Lost within the rapture of my never-ending quest
