To my sweet,
all the things I never said.
All those little things,
that filled my heart with dread.
I was never able to tell you,
all the emotions that I felt.
All the feelings that I held inside,
those with which I had dealt.
The longing on those cold nights,
to have your arms around me tight.
And to see your tender eyes,
the ones I love and are my prize.
The kiss from your gentle lips,
oh, the thing I made myself miss!
Your loving caress, ...
I swear I tried my best.
Those words I could not form,
those words I keep with such regret,
still linger in my throat
simply unable to form,
but I don’t fret.
I know that somewhere,
somewhere deep inside,
my heart has met with yours,
and they cling together with uttermost pride.

I know the feeling, sometimes I can't say something even if I want it to say so bad,
and sometimes it is to late to say it

ack! i always have things to say...buti hold them back till it is too late and the opportunity has passed

just a little piece of advice....more recently i have started saying things on my mind...and with whom you share...they will always return it with a locked up thought of their own...and sometimes their inner thoughts help to sort out your own

keep up the great posting

Its something I feel. Hold on to it. Its so sweet even in its ambiguity but be true. Someday you'll say those beautiful words.

I know those feelings all too well, also. It's horrible, but it passes.

Beautiful poem.  My favorite line was, "oh, the thing I made myself miss!"  Sometimes we make ourselves feel something simply because we want to.  It's a way that we cope with the circumstances that surround us every day.  Keep up the good work!
