All I Need

by Bradford J. Howard

If only words could serve 
to tell you in the best way
how I feel 
If only I 
were not so shy
to hold back the words 
that long to come out

There is no sweeter angel
on earth, 
no one more perfect to me 
and yet when I 
start to think of you, 
I start to wonder 
how I could be so lucky

You see, all I need
is you in my life
The one person I have known
all of my life
You say you are alone
and yet, so am I 
Can we be alone together?

Your smile and your eyes,
so welcoming and nice
When I am down,
you lift me up
When I long to
just give up and quit,
you keep my head up

If you ever need 
someone to be your friend,
I am here
If only there was 
something I could say,
I would tell you 
I love you in every way

I wish you could know 
all I need is you
in my life
Maybe I am your perfect mate
done in an imperfect shape
Anyone else would leave me incomplete
All I really need is you
