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


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.
