To the One I Love

I look at you, sometimes

in random moments of the day

and try to put how much I love you

in the little words I write and say
I attempt to describe the extent

of the lightness of being you bring

when your mouth crooks into a smile

when you laugh about some trivial thing
And as life’s emotions paint themselves

across the canvas of your face

I feel a burning, irrepressible desire

to be with you for the rest of my days
To hold your hand as life’s storms rage

so I might hear you laugh and cry

and as the years pass, to hold you close

through every hello, and each goodbye
Thus I end with a simple promise

of a love as deep as my soul’s core

and to let you know how much I love you

in all the ways of this world, and more.
