Fleeting Serenade

 I could chisel my love into a mountain
But mountains errode away 
If I carved my love in solid ice
It would only last a day

I could write my love up in the sky
But the wind would soon displace
I could write my love into a book
But letters can be erased

I could shout my love into the air
Sound waves expand and fade
I could sing my love in melody
A fleeting serenade

I could express my love with a simple glance
Even though my eyes can't see
For if they could, I'd have realized
That you do not love me.
