    How do I tell you

    Not that you’re my world
    But that you’re as much of my world as I want to know, right now

    How do I tell you

    Not that I’ll pluck the stars from the heavens and give them to you
    But that I’d love to share a champagne pic nic under a blue-black velvet sky with you

    How do I tell you

    Not that you make everyday brighter
    But that you brighten everyday I’m with you

    How do I tell you

    That I took a peek
    Through the window of dreams
    And saw you sitting at the sewing machine
    Weaving quilts of happiness
    And tapestries of love
    With stitches of time
    Drifting down from above
    Designed moments of future
    To show me the way
    Along the path of tomorrow
    Looking back on yesterday

    As we ride gentle waves
    Of happiness and cheer
    I smile with the knowledge
    You will always be near
    So, when the future arrives
    And the present gives way
    I’ll introduce you to today
    Saying goodbye to yesterday

    How do I tell you

    Not that I’ll die if you ever leave me
    But that I want to spend all my waking days with you

    How do I tell you

    I love you.

    may i?

    pluck one leaf
    then two
    offer a smile
    and share it with you

    may i watch you dance
    to and fro
    in the wind
    take,
    first,
    one bow
    then do it again

    may i ?:)

    thanks for the love.
