“Love is when he gives you a piece of your soul, that you never knew was missing.” ~Torquato Tasso, poet

“Sometimes the heart sees what is invisible to the eye.” ~H. Jackson Brown, Jr., author


I just want to look you in the eyes,
With hearts vulnerable and transparent, no disguise,
Followed by a loving kiss on your lips,
With my hands gently above your hips,

I whisper while close and near in your ear,
With words that only you can hear,
And if you listen, and you believe,
A relationship we can christen, a pain relieve,

Three simple words as if a passing breeze,
The type that rustles amongst the trees,
Words so subtle, more like a ripple than a wave,
But with impact requiring your heart be brave,

To have been betrayed in past relationship,
More difficult is it to trust companionship,
And these words which once were accepted,
Now bring hesitation–is it deceptive?

Yet, I cannot think of an alternative way,
To more accurately convey what I want to say,
And reflect in my soul what is heartfelt and true,
Than these three words, that “I love you.”
