I was moved to write a poem
but the words didn’t fit the moment
no matter how hard I tried to twist
and bend them to fit

I wanted to write a poem
about my heart
and love
and kisses
and the gentlest touch
that leaves me wishing
for nights and mornings
and time that doesn’t get distracted
by things and stuff
that keep me from finding the right words
to bend and twist

I needed to write a poem
to you
To say what I can’t
say out loud
To capture the moment
that only a poem can do

And so I wrote this instead
just to say
I love you
