More than I can say

I love you

like soft petals on skin

like the crackle of an open fire

like the glitter of winter and cold

night

like bubbles in champagne

and whispers on the wind

I love you more

than I can say

than I can wish to pour

into words

other than the three I know so well

because you reintroduced me

to their consonants and vowels

and the sweet sound they make

when spoken and sung.
