I WOULD WRITE YOU A LOVE LETTER

I WOULD WRITE YOU A LOVE LETTER,
but there’s not enough paper
to write down everything wonderful about you–
the way you laugh, talk, and kiss,
the way you do those little things
that make me so crazy about you.

I WOULD WRITE YOU A LOVE LETTER,
but there aren’t enough pencils
or pens or ink to put down
how you make me feel—
how you make my heart beat faster
and my breath catch whenever we’re close.
how you stay with me
like a love song I can’t get out of my head.

I WOULD WRITE YOU A LOVE LETTER,
but there aren’t enough hours
or days or lifetimes
to describe all you mean to me–
the way you’ve changed my world
and made me dream things
I never dared to dream before.

I WOULD WRITE YOU A LOVE LETTER,
but I can’t.
I love you too much.

So much so that I will sacrifice my own life in order to see you happy
with another. Because true love knows that sacrifice is
part of the deal. True love puts the other’s interest ahead of one’s own.
The author of this has kept this card for many years in the hope of bestowing it on the beloved.
But he has to open the door to welcome it. Still waiting…
