I wanted to write you a poem of love
To sing your praises to heaven .. in the sky
But the right words are always so hard to find
The words that I need just won’t come to my .. head.

I wanted to tell you that I would do something romantic
Like climbing Mount Everest or swimming the .. Pacific
Or exploring the Arctic or sailing the Nile
Or crossing the desert for mile after .. kilometre.

I wanted to praise your beauty and grace
To marvel at your smile and your lovely .. feet
Perhaps to include some little white lies
About the stars that shine in your sparkling .. champagne.

But try as I might, the words wouldn’t come
When it comes to romance, it’s as though I’m struck .. speechless
But it doesn’t change the way that I feel
Or the fact that my love for you is real.
