My Love

by Soyini Denise Liburd

Hush…Listen – Let me tell you what it means when I say
three words
I Love You.
It’s so much deeper than a reaction to your body
Or the stirring of my heart to the gentle way you
treat me
It’s the knowledge of no limit to what I would do
If ever you needed me to…
Beyond knowledge I know
Because most of all love is what I show
When I know how I feel, but can’t find word that say
I love you when I’m enchanted by your mind
When I long to climb inside… your thoughts
When I brush your skin but feel your soul
Everything I do with unmasked affection
My undivided attention – all for you
My love’s real when I can list everything I love about
On demand, whenever you should ask me to
I love you when I let you see my faults
When I remove them from dusty vaults
With fresh incentive to try to work them through
And I do, without ever trying to hide ME from you
I love when I think only of the best for you
Leaving my own interests untended
Knowing if ever you were threatened or hurt
I’d protect you and bear your wounded
body back to safety
And suffer the pain for us both
If I could
If I tried to save you before you drown
And saw in desperation, your struggle pulled me down
I know I love you because I wouldn’t let you go
I love you when I write this
While I’m not sure where you’ve gone
And I trust you as I fervently hope you won’t stay
away for long
My mind dreams only of reuniting with your soul
I don’t think to pull in reigns or tighten my hold
Best of all my love is free and freedom to be YOU with
And constant assurance that my love will always be
I mean all of this when I say
I Love You.
