Three Words!

I can’t tell you how much

I love you in three words.

Or even kiss you, with the thought of…

how much it fills my heart.

For the kiss, would consume us both

and the thought would seal

into another form of one.

I can only show you in pieces disguised,

as a kiss, a hug, a glance, a tear, a smile,

a soft touch on your hand and…

hope that…it will be enough.
