It was beautiful to talk to you tonight,
to remember in your voice the reasons that I love you.
I told you things I didn't know I thought
until I said them,
and things I'd thought but been afraid to say.
I want to find a way to tell you,
a way to let this truth from my heart
wander into your ears--
that you are the best, most beautiful woman in the world.
In you I've found someone who can speak to me purely,
someone with a soul brighter than starshine,
cleaner than dew.
So on this day when Valentines
are chosen, I must ask,
May I be yours?
