This Time

when i say i love you
it's because we can share a simple cup of
coffee and great conversation

when i say i love you
it's because you reach for my hand
in the darkness of night

when i say i love you
it's because when you kiss me
however slight...it permeates my soul

when i say i love you
it's because you ask about my day
and listen attentively

when i say i love you
it's because the moment i heard your voice
my heart said that i could trust you

when i say i love you
it's because for the first time in my life
i understand the word submission

when i say i love you
it's because when we sit in the company
of stillness words are not needed

when i say i love you
it's because my dreams, goals and
aspirations are just as important to you

when i say i love you
it's because your wisdom and experience
help me to face my biggest obstacles

when i say i love you
it's because no matter what happens today
tomorrow i can look back and say that
i knew love

Yup. Each of those instances would fit very well into an 'I Love You' scenario.

This was a lovely, beautifully written, well intentioned expression.

My Lady,
Thank you! It was inspired by a lost love...but a lovely lesson learned.

Lin, my friend...
When I get my, "I Love You" scenario, I'm so gonna live out this poem!

Thank you for the compliment.
