Longing For You

I can never tell you how I feel about you
The joy I feel every time I see you
The overwhelming disappointment
That washes over me
When I realize you won’t be coming in.

Can you not feel my heart?
Can you not hear every beat of my heart
That whispers your name silently, longingly
Although I can never let you hear
The soft murmurs of my heart.

Do you not see it?
Do you not feel it?
The tenderness that fills me
Whenever I’m near you,
Whenever I think of you.
