I had no words to say

How I really feel

“I love you” seems so trite,

“I’m yours”, too cheesy.

Let’s dispense with those elusive words,

Let romantics and poets grapple with them

Let’s simply be,

Let’s smile, and kiss, and make love

Let’s fight and make up and move on.

Once in a modest while,

We might go for a starlit swim,

While we dry off and lie on the grass,

I’ll count your freckles and trace your scars.

When we wake as the moon sets,

I’ll hold you close and whisper my love

Not for the world, not to be heard and celebrated

Just for you, and me, and the stars that still shine on.
