Did I mention that I love you?

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?

And

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!
