How Can I Tell You? (a poem)

Updated on August 6, 2010
How can I tell you when we can't even talk?
How can I tell you when we can't even talk?

How can I tell you how much you mean to me? How can I make you understand? How can I make you see? You've been with me through thick and thin, you were always there. I always knew you loved me, I always knew you cared.

How can I make you see yourself, the way that I see you? How can I make you understand there's no one else but you? How can I erase those little doubts that sometimes cloud your mind? How can I give you the peace that I know you long to find?

How do I let you know I love you and that will never change? How do I get inside your heart and take away the pain? How can I make you understand, the things that you won't see? How much that I really love you and I pray that you love me.

How do I stand the pain your insecurity puts me through? I can't take much more of this, but how do I tell you? How can I let you see the tears that you have caused to fall? How do I walk away from you, knowing you're my all?

How do I release the hurt that others to you have caused? How can I make you see that I've been with you through it all? How do I show you its me not her that's held on to your hand? How do I tell you? How do I make you understand?

How do I tell you that you'll always have my heart? How do I convince you that we'll never be apart? How do I tell you that you're pushing me away? How do I make you want me to stay? How can I pick up the pieces of the love love you had before? How do I  make you forget the past and close and lock that door?

How do I tell myself it's over, if I can't make you see? How do I explain the end to you, when I can't even explain it to me?

      I relate to this, we tried couple's counseling but he didn't even participate. I sympathize--and wish the communication was better.
