Things I Can't Say

The Rhythm of Love

I can't tell you "I love you"
Just because I like your eyes
Or the pretty little words you write

I can't tell you "I need you"
Because you make me feel alive
Every time you're on my mind

I can't tell you "I miss you"
"That I want you in my life"
Just because I like your smile

No, I can't say that I'll love you
As each new day passes by
Or that all we have is time

I can't tell you "I love you"
Just because it might feel right

I can't say that can I love you
But, I'd sure like to try

No try

There is, but try not, there might be.
Speak words that may be untrue, I cannot.
And do is much more fun than do not
Try and try as we might

I was all ready to just get all rhymy about it.

Then I got stumped.
Opened my mouth

My throat just clunked.

I tried again, to make it all work

My fingers stopped as we were aware

of the rhyming

a little off key

Thats when we remembered

That part of me

in the off beat
