I look at you and think:
I cannot live without you;
you’re the person of my dreams.
Of course I know I can, but I must give
My heart room to tell it as it seems.
Romance must have a language fit for feeling More than fits between the earth and sky.
For love there cannot be a floor or ceiling:
My love goes down too deep and flies too high.
So when I say I cannot live without you,
Know I can’t imagine so much pain;
And when I claim to always dream about you, Well, know the moon is happy once again. The sun reveals cold truths for all to see,
But I must light my love with poetry.
