(Literally just before retiring in the wee hours of the morning today a flash of inspiration bolted my mind. I heeded its beckoning and wrote. I’ll leave you guys to decide whether it was a flash of sheer brilliance or mere fools’ gold :-P. I can only hope it’s the former.)
I want to write words to make you smile.
I want to watch the light illuminate your eyes then spread to your lips.
I want to see those delicate features come alive with mirth.
I want to witness the beauty that is your smile…
I want to write words to make you blush.
I want to watch that hot rush of blood race to your cheeks.
I want to see you struggle to hide something you’d much rather show to the world
But keep in for the sake of sheer shyness.
I want to write words to make you dream.
I want to concoct visions of love in your head.
I want to make those dreams sweet and precious.
Dreams to fill your heart with brightest sun.
I want to write words to make you sing.
I want to hear your lips pour forth golden melodies that
Speak of the abundance of your heart.
I want you to hum to yourself and rock when you think of me.
I want to make your life a symphony of exquisite, unending
Melodies that you can never get enough of.
I want to write words to make you sigh.
Sigh with deep pleasure as you imagine us
Walking together, holding hands, kissing…
I want you to make soft, hi-pitched cries when it overwhelms you because
That’s all you can do.
I want to make it hard for you to breathe because the pure joy is
Too much for one soul to inhale all at once…
I want to write words to make you soar
Words that would lend you wings superior to those of the most majestic eagles
I want to watch you experience the sweet ecstasy of utterly boundless flight:
“Utterly boundless” because there’s no lurking, secret fear that I’ll
Take back those wings and just let you fall afterwards
I want to write words that dispel all your fears.
I want my words to strengthen your heart.
I want you to step forward into my loving embrace with pure, unapologetic confidence
I want you to trust me implicitly and to know my words come straight from my core to yours.
I want to write words to express to you my love.
I want you to tremble and go weak with emotion as you read them.
I want your heart to swell with pride because you know you’re the love of my life.
I want you to feel the warmth of true love overtake you and cradle you in its arms.
But, alas, I find too often that my words fail
And that they do not hold the power to
Capture the lofty, wordless expressions of this enamored soul.
Alas, I am left to face that bitter fact.
Yet, even then, there is still something I’d like to say,
Something I CAN say.
It may not be much but
I want to write to you the words “I love you”!
