There are too many words,
And yet not a one,
Or they’re far-flung on
Tongues and languages foreign
And at end of the earth I’ve never been
To describe the way you make me feel,
To describe the way I feel for you.
My every cell in a dance,
Uninhibited and free
I am filled, I am full, I spill
I want to give you the inside skin of the world
I want to gift you the King’s feet
…None of this does it.
But I keep up the word search because
Darling, I love you deep and fierce
And brim on tears each time I count my luck
Because you are every coin and currency
Every precious gift
Every pleasure, promise, and dream
Every luxurious, warm, and wonderful moment
And I can only smile when I lose track,
Knowing I’ll look into your beautiful eyes another day
And happily begin at “one” again.
