I can love you . I can hate you.

I can hold you till the end.

I see you when you're not there.

I read letters you don't send.

I can open up my heart to you.

I can offer you my soul.

I can hold onto the feelings .

Be them warm or be them cold.

I reach toward an out stretched hand.

Or is it really there?

I reach out towards a loved one.

I know that you still care.

I can still smell the perfume .

That you wore behind your ear.

I can feel the dampness on my chest .

As from you comes a tear.

I wish you back in person.

Not only in my mind.

A love like yours is finest.

When that love of yours is mine.
