to love you

you, you are my rose’s voice,
her flowing hair and bright face—
your smile is her rhythm’s grace
and your frown, her honest choice—

her strength and mine, in your hands,
in your embrace; in my heart she lands—

her blooming, your so deep romance:
so everything she touches touches you
beauty born every moment I’ll see true,
and she in me, each breath’s another chance

to love you.
