Ella

Ella

I can’t help but feel this way
Think about you on this special day
You’re alive and doing so much better
On a day like today, I miss you Ella

Words can’t explain how you make me feel
And your priceless heart I hope to steal
With love, care and devotion
With words, playful acts and love potion

So long is the queue, men beg for you
So popular in school, the special things you do
I’ll stand afar, hoping you’ll hear me
If its love you feel, then its me you’ll see

Not your well carved breast, clinging to your vest
Your well shaped body, cat-walking east to west
But the warmth they bring when we re hugging
The urge, the adrenalin rush and the sexual longing

Not your bright eyes, with searching gaze
Your lips and the dimple on your face
But the expression, the assurance when you smile
A message that you’ll always be fine

I could fall in love in thousand times more
Your place is intact, a woman I adore
Though my jealousy will never show
I like you more than he’ll ever know

Will fate be kind and our stars align?
Will you always be close, will you ever be mine?
Will I always awake to the warmth of your embrace?
Or will we just be friends, running another race?

I’m proud to have met a girl so special
Shared moments, someday we shall
Sing of the days we shared together
Its your day, Happy Birthday Ella.
