I Wish I Could Tell You

I wish I could tell you how much I’ve seen you grow
A thought that makes me smile,
Memories may be jagged but
The edges sand down over time.
Each struggle is fought with bitter blood and bones
Protected by the sweetness of a hug,
and the secure crook of the neck.
I see you continue forward and I am filled with pride.
I wish I could tell you how sweet you are
Your eyes are filled with care, soft and
kind.
You ask me how I am and I am reminded
Of love, and trust, and support.
And just that means more than you could know.
I wish I could tell you that you are perfect.
I could never be tired of looking at you
Memorizing your eyes, smile
The way your hair sticks up
Or how I run my hands down your waist.
Your laughter is like light,
Giving life to my love,
More contagious than I can help,
But your smile is second to none.
I could talk with you for years, or just sit next you.
If I am sharing a sweet kiss, or holding your hand,
I can be content.
You continue to grow, but you are perfect and could never disappoint.
I wish I could tell you I understand.
How anxiety can crumble happiness away,
Or how bitter thoughts betray, and invade
Until everything you are seems wrong, or
Unlovable.
These things that grip our hearts are weaker than
love.
And I wish i could tell you just how much i love you.
Imagine the stars in the sky,
Or every breath I’ve ever taken
And my love is still more.
Imagine something so driving and pure it inspires,
A fire lit inside of me,
Knowing I can do better.
My love is still stronger.
Imagine soft morning sunlight,
And steam rising up from sweet tea,
gripped in between a warm sweater,
And my love is still softer.
I wish I could say these things, so I will.
I am not afraid,
Because I am not alone.
I love you.
