Don’t let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do.John R. Wooden
I vow to show you how i rhyme
my words with my deeds
that i am not the type that misleads
you with my words just to make you mine.
Although I know that only time will show
whether or not my actions and words align
that i didn’t just say ‘I love you’ to make you mine
I hope you don’t believe that my words are just for show.
I hope you believe that i really, truly do adore you
and that you’ll unlock and open for me the door to your heart.
