Mr. Africa Poetry Lounge!

Have I Told You?

Have I told you lately
Just how much I care for you
Or how your gentle smile can
Melt my heart?

Have I mentioned how your
Whispered words can touch
My soul and still warm
Me in the moments we are apart?

Have I told you how I would feel
Without your arms to hold me close or
How empty life would be
Without you there?

Whether it is the times that
We spend far apart or
The special times together
That we share.

Have I told you how I have watched
Your restful face when you are asleep and
The tender fascination that I feel?

If I have not told you lately
It is because there are no words
To describe a love so deep and so for real.
