I Drink to You

.                        I can tell you how much I feel about you,
                          how the sun and moon are just objects
                            compared to you, how the bluest sky
                                pales to the color of your eyes,
                                   how the fires of hell are but
                                        flints compared to the 
                                             fires within me.
                                                      I can
                                                      even
                                                       tell
                                                      you
                                                       all
                                                       the 
                                                    things
                                              you do to me
                                    but I would rather show you.
