If Only

If only I could verbalize
The way you make me feel
How I have constant butterflies
Whose flutters I must conceal
How the pitter-patter of my heart
Keeps up a rhythmic beat
That only your gaze can start
My soul’s symphony on repeat
I can only hope that these
Whispered, steadfast I love yous
Do more than merely tease
And this heart’s melody easily construed
