To Love You
by Malory Columbretis
To love you is to love a lot and love so easily.
To love you is to take a shot at loving endlessly.
To love you is to love the sky from morning until night.
To love you is to love just why and for whom I must fight.
To love you is to love your smile and all your sorrows too,
Because, my love, you are worthwhile in everything you do.
To love you is to love a world so different from my own
For which I’d abandon the mould of everything I’ve known.
To love you is a peril and to find peace and leisure.
To love you is to understand attachment to treasure.
To love you is to find a home in a living being;
It is to paint the monochrome with colors worth seeing.
To love you is to live anew in every waking day
Which, love, I get to spend with you until I wilt away.
To love you is to find the bliss that transcends all the worlds
And be sure that I’ll never miss the things this life affords.
To love you is to love a song in its cacophony
To love you is just to belong in blissful harmony.
But, dear, the joy of loving you, is nothing compared to
The bliss of being loved by you and knowing this is true.
So now, love, let us keep this love for all eternity,
Let’s hope to gain experience of unending ecstasy!
