I Want To...........Choka

I want to say it,
I want to say I love you;
but you are not here
or I would hold you closer,
whisper in your ear
the words that you long to hear.
Perhaps I should call
express my heart on the phone
in those tender words
that make you feel love's caress;
but you are not home
my call cannot be answered.
I could write letters,
sweet epistles from my heart
but that takes too long
and I want to say it right now.

Darling, I love you,
and though we are miles apart,
my heart is always with you.
