I Cannot Say

I cannot say how much you make me feel How much those heavy eyes do make me light An airy weightless stirring in my soul A passion near intense I’ll never have I know you feel it too but you won’t speak There’s nothing to be said it’s plain to see I cannot say how much it makes me ache To know how painful spirit love can be Between two bodies yearning to be one A foolish dream, I know, but nonetheless— How can I bear to think these hopeless thoughts Of loving you with nothing else but this? I cannot say how helpless I must seem To some great god of love who’s smitten me With wants of love I’m destined not to make Your secret warmth and softness I’ll not know Too close, of course, but never close enough And close enough, of course, will never be
