Fresh Poetry

This one’s been done for a while now…I was just hanging onto it because I thought I would eventually find the words that would allow me to add more…


 

I love you

 

I love you
more than daylight.
I love you
more than the newspaper in the morning,
a good book or
an icy can of Diet Coke.
I love you
more than I ever thought possible.
I love you
more than I ever loved him.

 

I love you with every breathless moment
of my rather short life.
I love you with every word
ever written by a man
dead or alive.
I love you with every word
ever sung by a woman.
I love you with every word
ever dreamed of in spirit.
But I also love you
more than any words
can ever say.

 

I love you beyond death.
I love you from this life
into the next.
I love you
beyond the gilded stars,
the glimmering planets,
and the peerless moon.
I love you
in the azure waters
of my Great Lakes.
I love you
on white sand beaches
walking toward
the golden horizon.
I love you
in the endless forests
of my childhood home.
I love you,
I love you,
wherever I shall roam.
