How does love speak?

I endlessly tried to find the right words
To describe my love for him
“I immensely love you”? was not enough.
I felt utterly empty inside my heart

I read Shakespeare, Robert Burns, and even Kadare
To steal the words of love
No words could translate the feeling of my soul.

How does love speak?
How can I explain?
What lives inside my heart?
What loves inside my veins?

Should I tell him I would circle the universe
Through rain or storm?
I would wait a lifetime for his love?

Or that without him my life's meaningless?
He's the center of my universe
My unlimited happiness?

I forget everything else when I look into his eyes
My heart jumps like crazy
My eyes full of light.

Every problem big or small dissapears
A heavenly feeling immediately appears.

How does love speak?
How can I explain?
What lives inside my soul?
What lives inside my veins?

Lost in his ocean of love
I suffer for words to find
For my love has no voice
My love is blind

So I MUST, I MUST, invent something bigger than love

To tell him I ….. him,

I'll find the missing word.
