Did I mention that I love you?
That you are constant like the stars.
Did I mention that I need you
when you held me in your arms?
If there is silence where once I whispered
words of love into your ear,
it’s only because of the weight of others’ words I have to bear.
And for the world, I am your love, and lover, ’til I die,
I feel so safe with you, and with the love there in your eyes.
Did I mention that I love you
in the present and the past?
I will love you for all time,
until the day I breathe my last.
A poem that I wrote for my husband. The scansion needs a little tweaking!
