I wish I could say it like an old song goes
but the thing is,
I can smile without you
I can laugh, and sing–even dance a little, too

but the other thing is,
I do feel sad when you’re sad,
and what wouldn’t I do just to see you be glad?

I wish I could tell you,
say it like an old friend would
because I can’t help but bother
quite more than I should

So my point is…

I may be undefined,
obscured by lines I never drew
but simply said, I care
perhaps that much you never knew

And I think it’d be a waste
of a perfectly lovely smile
if you wouldn’t even try to use it

Maybe the right one hasn’t found you
but it doesn’t mean nobody else has
