je t’aime by anelephantcant

some words need no translation
like the ones I’m thinking of
I know you’ll understand me when
I speak the sweet language of love
je t’aime

I have no education
I don’t claim I am clever
but I’m smart enough to want you
deep in my heart forever
je t’aime

I loved you when we first met
I loved you more as time went by
I love you now with all my heart
and I’ll love you till I die
je t’aime

my thoughts are still unspoken
my poems remain unsigned
perhaps I wasn’t clear enough
why did I not speak my mind
je t’aime

now my last hope is forsaken
my last penny has been spent
somehow I let you walk away
not knowing what I meant
je t’aime
je t’aime
je t’aime

About AnElephantCant

An artist/writer/poet combination whose blogs reflect an approach to life that celebrates nature and takes a tongue-in-cheek view of most issues. So you get rhymes and doodles, photographs and comment. Irreverent and irrelevant. Occasionally funny, sometimes serious, mostly pointless.

    Elephant so sad, especially when I hear you read it! You sound heartbroken. Beautifully written.

    Très beau et plein d’espoir perdu il me semble. Bises 🙂
