I WANT TO SHARE WITH YOU
I’ve written a number of poems,
some I’ve shared with you.
There are others that I’ve written,
but sharing them, I’m not ready to do.
Often the things I write,
are just for me to see.
Usually they’re about certain things
that are very personal to me.
Lately, some of my writings
have included thoughts of you.
I’ve been experiencing these strange feelings
that, for me at least, are new.
I’ve never been impulsive,
I’ve always tried to think things through.
At least that could be said,
until the day I first wrote you.
You’ve messed with my head.
You’ve scrambled up my brain.
I’ve been so long alone,
I’m unfamiliar with the terrain.
For years I‘ve been a bachelor.
That’s the life I know.
I’m not used to being with someone
wherever I may go.
You’re really very special.
You need only to believe.
I want to share more time with you
and there’s nothing up my sleeve.
But, finding someone so special
wasn’t something I had planned.
I’m not quite ready to commit
and need to know you understand.
I probably don’t deserve you,
but, I’ll try hard to earn that right.
And if you’ll be very patient,
in time,,,, some day,,,, I might.
Even though I‘m still not certain
of the direction we should take,
for the short time we have left,
nothing should be fake.
For me, you’re picture perfect.
I’m very comfortable with our fit.
And, I’m pretty sure my comfort
is as good as it can get.
Yet, I still can’t promise
never will we part.
I’ve lived a life of bachelorhood
and it’s still within my heart.
But, if some day we should separate,
you can be sure of it.
The reason will never be,
that I found a better fit.
Here and now I promise
always to be true .
Never shall you need to wonder
if there’s someone other than you.
