If I penned my heart and shared it with you,
I have complete confidence you’d know what to do.
If I voiced my feelings in expressions meant as a gift,
I trust you’d receive it as a meaningful lift.
If I touched you tenderly as I like to do,
I’d accept your response as a gift from you.
If I sit and gaze longingly into your eyes,
I’d see your return gaze as a meaningful prize.
If all that I offer is returned in kind,
I’d be totally confident your heart is mine.

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane,
I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.
