I Love You
I love you like the bee loves the flower –
You nourish my soul and make me taller,
Sweeten my palette and brighten my sky,
Bring such excitement and make me feel high.
I love you like a rainbow after storms and strife –
You’re the colorful gal in my black and white life
Who lights a candle to help me cope,
Soothes my whole self, and provides much hope.
I love you like a feast on a famished day –
You flash your grin and my blues fade away;
You’re the summit above an azure sea,
Prompting me to climb up so I can see.
I love you for the lift your letters bring –
They spike my mood and make me want to sing!
Just seeing your name unlocks the secret door
To open my heart like no other before.
I love your sweetness like mango ice cream –
You caress my heart and dare me to dream;
That you care and think of me often
Comforts me that I’m not forgotten.
I love you for your harmonic voice –
Soft as cotton and a little moist;
Mildly hypnotic, it soothes my whole being,
Putting me at rest with a peaceful feeling.
I love your face for all its joy –
Beautiful, warm, and slightly coy;
You’re the prettiest rose in the whole bouquet –
Whenever I see you, how I hope you’ll stay.
I love your splendid smile –
Sincere and without guile,
Teasing and flirtatious,
Content and contagious.
I love your hair –
Long, brown, full, and fair;
Curling, swirling, soft, and shiny,
I want to get lost in it and for you to find me.
I love your seductive scent.
It’s so enticing – just a hint;
Like a gardenia in a joyful June
Or a magnolia under a full moon.
I love you for how you take my hand
To let me know I’m your special man;
And, when you lean your head against mine,
I swoon as if drunk on pumpkin wine!
I love your kisses and holding you tight –
Embracing you, all is right;
Just to touch you is to feel buzzed –
Best of all is realizing I’m loved.
I love your whole wonderful being –
It’s you who sends my senses reeling;
You’re the ideal for whom I’ve long been dreaming –
That you love me back gives my life new meaning.
