Is love unspoken, any less intense?
There are many times, words fail
To express all the emotions I feel
Times when words are inadequate,
Rather than convey, words can conceal…
You’ve asked often to be reassured
That I really love you! But isn’t the smile
On my face enough to show my feelings?
A lie I can’t hide, I know not to beguile!
You’ve asked me to enumerate the reasons
For the love I have for you;
As if the longer the list, the truer love will be!
But all I know is I do… I just do
Isn’t it enough that my eyes twinkle?
That my heart beats so much faster?
That there’s a happy spring in my stride?
When first I saw you, and ever after!
Isn’t it enough that I hum a melody?
Whenever you’re around or close to me
Isn’t it enough that I miss you terribly?
When we’re apart and your face I don’t see
Isn’t it enough that I hold your hand?
When we’re together, wherever we go
Isn’t it enough I let you see the tears
In my eyes, when I am full of sorrow?
Ask me not to explain myself
In my heart I know my love is true
Ask me not for reasons why
For I know not … I just do!
