To Know You Cherish Me
The heartfelt words may choose to hide
from loving hearts that cast aside
unsuited phrases, that can't say
"I love you" in that special way.
I search, so hard, for words to use,
but find so few that do not lose
the meaning that should simply be
the truthful thought -- "You cherish me."
When nights are long, and you're not there,
I seek a word or phrase to share
the feeling deep inside of me
when I believe -- "You cherish me."
To find a loving word or phrase
that best describes the loving gaze
you give to me, and I to you,
is something difficult to do.
But, every day, I'll search and sort
for words to say what's in my heart.
and, through my eyes, I hope you'll see
the meaning of -- "You cherish me."
