Ramblings

i tried to write a poem, to tell you how i feel
but the words didn't rhyme and the thoughts just
sort of rambled on and on, like the things i'd like to say
and i wanted you to read it, so i could watch you smile
and watch the tears form on your eyes, and roll
down your cheeks, across your lips, and let me
know that you understood what i'd like to say
so i tried to write a poem, to tell you how i feel
i tried to put my heart to words but they wouldn't come
out of my mind and through my hand and onto the page
