Have I Ever...

Have i ever told you..
that if I sit really still and silent,
sometimes..i like to think..
i can hear your heart beating..
in time with mine?

Have I ever told you...
that when I watch you speak to me..
through lines and cords,
and bytes and ram,
I imagine...
your voice,
whispering into my ear?

Have I ever told you...
that I wait out each day
in anticipation..
only an hour or two..
just a second in space and time,
to feel close to you?

Have I ever told you..
that there has been times,
when I ached for you..
ached for you so badly,
that the emotions overwhelmed me..
and so I sat and cried?

Have I ever told you..
that sometimes,
I will reach out
touching your name..
on this cold screen before me,
I could reach in
and pull you to me?

Have I ever told you..
that after the first time I ever heard
the sound of your voice..
thousands of miles away..
I sat up all night,
turning the conversation over and over
in my mind,
examining it,
like some newly discovered species of flower?

Have I ever told you..
that I would give everything up,
just for one night..
to be able to lay near you..
to feel your chest rise and fall
with each breath you take,
just to know that you are real?

Have I ever told you..
that I dream of you often..
I dream of you reaching out
and touching my hand..
simply to let me know
that you are there,
and everything is okay?

Have I ever told you..
ohh my sweet baby,
have I still yet to tell you...
that I love you?
