The words I wanted to use escape me as I sit with pen in hand.
This isn't an ultimatum and I'm not drawing a line in the sand.
I wanted to write you a letter to tell you how I feel.
I'm trying to tell you I'm sorry as my tears hopefully reveal.
I wish I was some kind of professor or had a PhD.
Maybe then you would understand or even believe in me.
I know my limitations, I'm not the smartest man.
I don't remember the details or even how it all began.
I'm sure if I used the right words I could explain my heart.
My love for you is forever and can never be torn apart.
You are the part of me that makes me a better person.
Whenever we aren't together I feel pain that continues to worsen.
I hate to give up or quit, but I'm not able to write this letter.
I guess I'll just try a hug because that always makes you feel better.
