They ask me how I know that it truly is love,

but I cannot give them the answer they desire.

How can I describe the way I feel

when your gentle hands caress my face?

How could I tell just how a sweet word

whispered by your lips

sets my heart racing?

How would I express how the very thought of you

brings a smile to me, even when I am sad?

No, I cannot explain.

I just know that this feeling I have for you

is real.
