You are more than a poem to me

Write me a poem, he said to me.
Day and night, I sat at my desk.
I tried. I tried to write.
I tried to express what I could never define.
I tried to describe.

But, then I realize,
Why I can’t write
When you are on my mind.
It is because
You are more than a poem to me.
