He Wanted Her To Know - Poem by Jim Yerman
He wanted her to know he loved her
and that his love would never stop
He thought…what if I shouted ‘I Love You'
from the highest mountain top?
Surely then what's in my heart
she would understand
when she hears my words ride upon the wind
or echo off the land.
And then he thought…what if we walked along the water's edge
together hand in hand
and I stopped…drew a heart and wrote,
‘I Love You' in the sand
Surely then she'd understand
I could not love her more
when she sees what's in my heart…
written on the shore.
But then he realized…words written in the sand
or echoed from the mountain quickly fade away.
He wanted something that would last forever
something that would stay.
Something permanent to let her know
the love in his heart would never disappear…
So every day he holds her close
and whispers "I Love You"…in her ear.
