…Told him I loved him a thousand times.
Wrote it in poems, notes, lyrics, and rhymes.
…Whispered to his mind in a million ways.
Said it in thoughts, dreams, shiny gold rays.
…Let him know it in my saddest hour,
Expressed without fear, shed tears, did not cower.
…Made him feel me in the dark of night,
Touched him in a way only I knew was right.
…An understanding place that is so rare,
Opened the heart, the mind, my soul laid bare.
…Gave safe harbor on this cruel, lonely planet,
Laid down in truth, raw-edged, heat rimed with regret.
…Will tell him I love him a million more times,
Won’t send hearts, flowers, flaming blue sighs…
…I will write it in poems, stories, lyrics, and rhymes…
(Dedicated to J.)
