I Just Want to Say

I just want to say,
that through all of these times,
I’ve found the true you,
from right up behind

I just want to say,
that it’s really not true,
all of the people,
that say that your not cool

I just want to say,
the you’re perfectly fine,
I promise i’m not lying,
no, not this time

if anything you’re lovely,
simply divine,
like the warm ocean breeze,
in the crisp summer time

you’re smart like a geek,
and handsome at that,
you’re perfect at everything,
and I know that’s a fact

no need to dissuade me,
I know it’s all true,
because i’ve seen the side,
even hidden from you

but I have some bad news,
that I really must share,
I can’t go with you,
to that place way up there

the place were there’s love,
every which way,
the place where the sun,
shines everyday

the place where its perfect,
no way to fall through,
a place where the smart,
can do what they do

I know you’ll be fine,
i’ve seen what you do,
and i’m sorry to say,
that i’m not like that too

I’m not the girl,
that most think me to be,
with the perfect life,
and great personality

I try to be that,
really... I do,
but I just can not be,
a person like you

I wish I could be there,
for you as you grow,
but i’ve written this letter,
for you, as you know

I just want to say,
that I know you’ll be fine,
and I hope you believe me,
when I say
I love you...

one last time

I wrote this as a piece for a poem competition at school. I didn't win, but lots of people told me afterword that it really moved them.
