I won’t say that I love you
I’ll just show you that I do.
For words they come too easily
and actions speak so true.
I won’t cling desperately to your hand,
just return when day is done.
It doesn’t mean that I don’t want you:
I need you as the flower needs the sun.
I won’t buy you flowers though,
for bought bouquets are already dead.
Whereas my love for you is live and loud
and disco dancing inside my head.
I won’t squeeze you tightly in my arms,
for once held I may never part.
Your name repeats with every beat,
a raw rhythm inside my heart.
I will answer you honestly,
so please be wary what you ask.
Love should neither need illusions
nor hide itself behind a mask.
I will be there beside you
when we travel the world one day.
Whether mountain high or valley low,
support you come what may.
I will be there with interesting quotes
and with songs selected for every mood.
With funny lines to cheer you up
and oh, so much tasty food!
I will make you believe in magic
and that miracles may be true.
We witnessed one already on
the day that I found you.
So, have I shown you enough?
