I'm finding it hard to find a way
to tell you just how much
I'm in love with you today.
I hope I'm doing this right
as I'm feeling lost in explaning this.
I love you for the things that you do,
for the way you make me feel.
I hold you near to me,
more than I care to say.

For the way that you bring bright light
into my dull gray point of view.
For all the time you held out your hand
for me to keep walking.
For all the late nights we sit
and you let me talk and complain,
there is no other like you.

I'm finding I let you in,
maybe more than I should
but I'm willing to give this a go
and love you back more then you know.
I'm holding my heart out just for you
to tell you 'yes, I do love you to'.

    other than a couple of spelling errors and the fact that i thought Kale referred to a green leafy vegetable, i like this poem of friendship and trust and perhaps hope. thanks for sharing.

Tonight at Fu-chou, this moon she watches
Alone in our room. And my little, far-off
Children, too young to understand what keeps me
Away, or even remember Chang'an. By now,
