No letters to declare my heart’s intent
My emotions and passion are all spent
I won’t hurt you but have no love to give
A shattered heart can only just live
I tell you this again, day after day
A broken man with nothing left to hide
I am grasping the last threads of my pride
Yet still I hear the words of love you say
And wonder on the how, why, when and where
Love can be lost on one who’ll never care
How can you still whisper that you love me
And how can you lay your soul down, so bare
I wish I could feel all the same things too
And look in your eyes to say, ‘I love you’
