I CAN BUT I CANNOT
I can get tortured and not feel pain
But I cannot see you die and not shed a tear.
I can go in the rain and not get wet
But I cannot see the future and not say we’ll be together.
I can touch fire and not scream
But I cannot sit still and not know that you are in danger.
I can smell something nasty and not say anything
But I cannot be with you and not love you.
I can sleep in snow and not be cold
But I cannot have a phone and not call you.
I can get shot and not die
But I cannot hold you and not kiss you.
I can taste something nasty and not make a face
But I cannot think about you and not cry.
I can hear something funny and not laugh
But I cannot say I love you and not hear you say it back.
I can get a cut and not bleed
But I cannot sleep and not dream about you.
I can walk a hundred miles and not rest
But I cannot look up and not see you.
I can sleep and not wake up
But I cannot run away from you and not look back.
I can look at the sun and not go blind
But I cannot walk and not have you by my side.
I can go in a thunderstorm and not get electrocuted
But I cannot live and not have you with me.
I can have magic and not use it
But I cannot die and never lived.
I can die and still be with you
But I cannot see you and not love you.
I can get annoyed and not lose my temper
But I cannot look you at and not forgive you.
I can see people around me and not feel a thing
But I cannot love you and not be there for you.
I can live a hundred years and not feel old
But I cannot fly and not protect you.
I can see ghosts and not be afraid
But I cannot have you in my life and not pay any attention to you.
I can touch poison ivy and not be itchy
But I cannot see my life and not picture you in it.
I can kiss you and not move a muscle
But I cannot look at you and not say I love you.
And we can be together forever........always.
