The feeling inside……


I found this poem and I think it’s beautiful. It pretty much sums up a lot of my feelings. I want to dedicate it to Willie. I love you and I hope you like it.

The Feeling Inside

© By Ashley L. Charles

The first time we talked there was something about you

As we talked on the phone you had my full attention

I lingered on your voice hoping you would say those five words

And when you did I was so overwhelmed I missed it

The next day when I got to hang out with you was more than I ever expected

When I looked into your eyes I knew there was nowhere else I wanted to be

Lying in your arms I realized that I might never get the chance to feel this way again

So I decided that if being with you was a risk then I was willing to take it

After I left that night so many thoughts ran through my head

I wondered if you were feeling exactly the same way I was

I wanted to know what it was that was going on inside your head

I was hoping that what I was feeling was more than just butterflies in my stomach

I spent the whole night wondering what would happen next

I realized that nothing was like I ever expected it to be

Even though I had put up a wall to keep all those others on the outside

You found the one little crack and seemed to work your way inside

Once I figured out what was truly going on inside my heart

There were so many things that I wanted to say to you

I wanted to let you know how much you truly meant to me

I wanted to tell you that I wasn’t sure if I could make it without you

But at first I just couldn’t find the words to say exactly how I feel

I was afraid to let you know that you had found a way inside

I was worried that if I let you know how I felt you wouldn’t feel the same way

But I took a risk and let you know how much you truly meant to me

Now that you know how I feel I’m so scared that you’ll just fade away

But no matter what happens I want you to know something

I need you to know that I would never trade you for anything in the world

I would take a thousand painful moments just to spend the rest of my life with you
