Hey! : A Poem


by Lee Douglas

"With one glance I see you.
And my thoughts bubble out.
My voice is a whisper,
but my heart is a shout.
As large as a building,
as tall as a tree.
As wide as a country.
As deep as the sea.
My love can't compare,
to the most enormous of these.

As big as the moon,
As far as the sun,
But these are not endless,
Whilst my love just goes on.
As big as the universe,
the sum of parts,
now we're getting closer,
but there's still some contrast.

Take the space between planets,
between the moon and the sun.
The space between atoms,
And gaps hidden in them.
Take the sum of those absences,
those zeroes in time.
That's the size of my love.
The thoughts that share one design.

Yet that which my mind thinks,
my tongue just cannot say.
That moment I see you,
All sense goes away.
I surrender my wit,
and clever wordplay.
Til just one word escapes:
One shy little, "Hey!"."
