There are but three words
In the entire expanse of the universe
That intertwine feelings,
Give shape and meaning to life,
Make sense of thoughts and visions,
Are as light as the wings of butterflies
In the stomach of lovers.
They are based on faith and honor.
They glorify what is illuminated in the eye.
In the soul there can be no other means,
No scent nor taste or sound.
These words are what I know is truth
And I can say it no better than this
For my lips long for the joy that eludes me.
My poetry is a kiss that rushes to you,
My arms an ache for your embrace.
We said, my love, “I love You”
Those words live forever in the heart
And in the soul of the one who says them.
