My Gift

By Jose Lozano

Excuse me, I don't mean to bother,
But there are a few things I want to say
I know that things between us have been awkward
Ever since that awful day.

I don't know how to stop myself
from thinking about you,
when I work It's hard to think straight
when all things remind me of you,

The addiction of you I can't get rid of,
but it's something I don't wish to heal
Because I hope one day you'll realize,
Just how happy you make me feel.

I lay at night tossing and turning,
wondering if you'll ever be with me
To give me time to show you,
what a perfect woman you are to me.

I know I'll make you happy,
and wouldn't make you cry
But then I heard you didn't want me
and chose another guy.

So how can I be happy
when you're not here with me,
To know that you're with someone else
I just refuse to see

I think that you're so beautiful,
my words just can't describe
Your eyes, your nose, your hair, your smile,
Is just beauty you can't hide

You just don't know how hard it is
To be so close to you each day
And not be able to steal a kiss
That will take my breath away

I want to know your dreams at night
And protect you from your fears
To keep you warm and hold you tight
And wipe away your tears

All I ask of you is for one moment
Just one moment of your time,
Time enough to let you know,
Just what's really on my mind

That there's something deep inside,
that eats at me each day.
Knowing you'll be gone soon
Leaves my heart to wilt away

Countless hours just go by,
when I sleep and say your name
Then I wake up and I wonder,
if you also do the same

I could just write and write forever,
And just let my feelings show
But my actions will speak louder
With one kiss then you should know

I want to thank you for the time you took
To read these words I wrote for you.
Now you'll know what special is.
When the mirror looks at you.
