IF I COULD

If I could write a lovely rhyme
to show how much I care for you,
Id pen it with the finest ink
to tell you of my love so true.

Upon a parchment page so rare,
my words would stream in metered style;
my verbs and nouns would dance with joy
to match the essence of your smile.

My heart would pulse on every line
the way it does when you are near;
a thousand violins would play
sweet music only you could hear.

But I can't write a lovely rhyme
depicting such ecstatic bliss,
so darling, I will show it with
the heartfelt fervor of my kiss.
