I saw the valentine poetry contest (2006) and this poem jumped out from what I'm feeling right now, as in 'I wish...'
I cannot say it isn’t nice
When you are by my side,
I cannot say that when you look
That I will ever hide.
It’s not the fact your eyes don’t pull me
Down into your heart,
It's not the way your kiss in dreams
Makes me wake with a start.
It’s just that moment when you close
Those eyes and fall asleep
That my gaze rests on your form
And I try not to weep.
I can’t help but trace your face
In this soft blue light,
And I can’t stop the tears of love
As I kiss you goodnight.
