Whenever I look into your eyes

Eyes that cannot look back

It makes me realize that it is not 

Communication that you lack


Instead as I touch your hand

Or your face so filled with glee

I know that it is really my heart

And soul that you can see


Never have I experienced 

Such a feeling of intense joy

When I believe that I

Have connected with such a special boy


If you are someone who doesn’t

Feel as if you can partake in this

Think again and take a look at him

I can only say “How much you’ve missed”
