I remember saying goodnight one last time
To the girl whom my heart ached for at night
Seeing your face through the window of thine
Surged a break through my soul of Godly might.

In an instant my eyes glistened with tears
My heart felt the weight of cupids arrow
Knowing this moment need last for years
Without you near, happiness welcomed sorrow.

Trying to find ways to say "I Love You"
To that someone who needn't be told
To look in your dark eyes.... so pure, so true
Became an obsession of a heart so bold.

As we part, words needn't flow from my shaking lips
For you knew love when you left my finger tips.
