No Words

written by: The Quiet Quill

@TheQuietQuill

 

How do I love thee?
Shall I compare thee?
Many questions in love are asked.

I have counted the ways,
I've compared Summer's days,
And still every word you surpass.

There are no words to describe
That look in your eyes
Of passion, excitement and trust.

There is no painting that could portray
The beauty of you,
Or your light, inside and out.

There is no song that can move me
Like the sound of you
Calling me “Wife” and saying, “forever”.

There is no photo that could capture
The essence of you,
Your intelligence, sparkle and mind.

How do I love thee?
Shall I compare thee?
I shouldn’t try, as words aren’t enough.

Yet you continue to inspire me,
Words pour out of me,
But still, no words can describe this love.
