I LOVE YOU TOO: A POEM


Seldom have I felt so animated

Or exuberant as when you said you loved me

My vision swims before me

Waves of delight, I see

Love, I can hardly stand

If my cheeks blush anymore

They’d be scarlet

I can’t breathe for joy

I sit and stand, fumble and fret

I do not know what I say

Or what I do, I just sigh

I sing, I cry, I wish I could die

In your arms to complete this sweet dream

You said, you love me

But me, Love!, I may not survive

The fullest happiness ever to befall me

If I weather the silver words of thy sweet lips

If I survive and be yet alive

The shock of my greatest wish

My deepest love, long enough

I want to say, I love you too.....

This is a sweet little poem that captures the immediacy and the emotional reaction to 'I love you'so beautifully. I love the word play, the innocence and the sheer exuberance of being in love. My favorite part of the poem is the visual delight of these lines:

I can’t breathe for joy

I sit and stand, fumble and fret

I do not know what I say

Or what I do, I just sigh

I sing, I cry, I wish I could die'

Well done! Voted up/beautiful!
