I Love You


You ride ahead.
I admire the view
Of you.
We arrive.
Place wine on the blanket.
We drink it.

Cheeses perspire.
Sev’ral grapes amiss.
We kiss.
We are so young.
We seem to live
Forever.

Precious and Few.
We dance just we two.
Then you
Murmur my name,
Glance up and pause
Because?

          Your shining eyes and glowing face
          Stop my breathing, ooh.
          All color and sound, around dissolve.
          So warm. You whisper . . .

The world goes white.
I stumble dazed,
Eyes glazed.
I have to sit
Or fall. I’ve fallen
With you.

          Your shining eyes and glowing face
          Stop my breathing, ooh.
          All color and sound, around dissolve.
          So warm. You whisper, “I Love You”.

          So warm. You touch me, “I Love You”.

          So warm. You hold me, “I Love You”.

          So warm. I whisper, “I Love You”.
