#12 of 14 Things I Love About You: Your Words

I love your words; come whisper in my ear
I’ve never heard a poem more sublime
Than words you tell me; words I love to hear
Like sounds of meaning, filling borrowed time
I heard a little song, sung in your voice
The melody was rich with notes of love
I harmonized as best I could, by choice
But still I couldn’t match the words thereof
Of course I took it as a sign to write
Another little song that I could sing
Although I know I’ll never bring to light
The brilliance of your words, and all they bring
When you, yourself, come whisper them to me
But, I can whisper back in harmony
