Love letter

I wanted to write you a poem,
but there are not enough words
in all the languages of the world
to express the essence of your being.
I wanted to paint you a picture
to exhibit the warmth and brightness
and beauty you bring to my life 
but there are not enough colours
in the spectrum of light to illustrate
the intense vividness of your presence.

I wanted to compose
you a symphony to give harmony
to all the music you bring to me
but there are not enough notes
in the musical scale to bring forth
the melodious nature of your being.

And so I write this simple letter to say: 
You are my first thought in the morning, 
and the last thought at night,
and in all the moments in between
I constantly think and dream of you.
I love you. Always.
