Let me kiss and show you what is love
and the happiness it brings.
You’ll sail again like a butterfly
endowed with pretty wings.
It is not your conversation
That keeps me entertained
But rather the way you look at me
That makes me feel sustained
It’s the curve of your lips
And the curl of your hair
It’s all of the little things
That makes me stop and stare
How does Love speak?
By the uneven heart-throbs, and the freak
Of bounding pulses that stand still and ache,
While new emotions, like strange barges, make
Along vein-channels their disturbing course;
Still as the dawn, and with the dawn’s swift force–
Thus doth Love speaks.
To love is to have someone special,
one on whom you can always depend
to be there through the years,
sharing laughter and tears,
as a partner, a lover, a friend.
