I Love You
I love you more than reason’s breath can speak,
A love which even this heart would not seek.
One day- the sun rose higher than before-
“Till I saw you and will see nothing more.
It brought the end of ordinary days-
An all consuming love in me always-
As through a screen is everywhere your face-
Stealing my heart for all it would embrace.
To love you is to feel in every breath
Connection stronger than the fear of death-
Perfection is to know that you exist-
For all the dreams my heart can not resist.
What else can matter? Let the visions fade-
This love will not, I’ll never be afraid-
What matters- if you grasp my heart or no-
The truth is I will always love you so.
