I love your strength of body, mind, and soul
I hope you know my love for you is strong
My heart is yours; I give you full control
Although I know just where our hearts belong
Okay, “control” may not be what I meant
Although I meant your strength could take my heart
I know, my love, you’d never circumvent
My own free will; you’re not just strong; you’re smart!
I love the way you turn your strength to love
It’s strength of heart you have; I just forgot
To list it with the strengths I named above
That doesn’t mean you’re weak. Of course you’re not!
It only means my poetry is weak
When metaphors get heavy, so to speak.
