I wonder if he knows that I think he's amazing
I wonder if he knows I'm not the only one
He smiles and I smile, knowing something he doesn't
Knowing that he affects my heart in small secret places
That others have searched years for
He burrowed his place there and carved his name within days
Radiating the charm of a boy migled with the intensity of a man
His eyes are like dreamscapes to another world entirely
I see the journey that lies ahead
There is something in those eyes that I wish for myself
I see him changing, growing, becoming more than he realizes
He sings and the echo of his voice embeds itself in my head
I know that he has a gift of touch
The kind of touching that occurs even without skin ever meeting
What he writes wiggles and weaves its way into my spirit
I am made aware that I have slumbered too long on earth
So there is a new longing for life
Yearning for breath that comes from something other than air
I cannot tell him these things
I cannot tell him that I think he is absolutely amazing
I cannot tell him that anyone who doesn't think the same is a fool
But I wonder if he knows
