Into Words - Poem by Kenneth Davis

Into Words by Kenny Davis

With the privilege of knowing you
I have been cursed with a curse
Because all that I feel for you
I find hard to put it into words

When I want to say something on how I feel
The verbal expression is difficult to find
But it is that unspeakable love I’m telling you
That I can’t seem to deny

My love for you, beyond understanding
Expressing with words is not enough
Worth more than giving you the world
Other riches and material stuff

If actions speak louder than words
Why is it the words we’re looking to hear?
“I love you! ” “I need you! ”
“You are my heart forever, my dear.”

It is said, “More can be said with silence than with speaking.”
Then what else is there left to be said?
Do I tell her, “Your eyes, your smile, your walk, your talk…..”
“……..My heart skips a beat, and takes me out of breath.”

How do I express to her in words
Without the slightest effort of speaking
Do I say that, “She sealed the cracks of a once broken heart….”
“…..causing my love for her to overflow, instead of leaking.”

What kind of words, phrases, or lines do I use…
In order to get the point of my love for her across?
Do I say that, “I praise God that he led me to find her…”
“Because without her, I am lost.”

How do I use these letters and markings…
…to deliver the love for her I need to express?
That, “I love, honor, treasure, and cherish you.”
“This I vow, promise, and shamelessly confess.”

How do I translate my love for her
When words are all I have
Do I say that, “While my words might fade away…”
“…my love for her is sure to last.”
This is indeed the dilemma I face
The troubling puzzle that I have come to fear
Hopefully the words and love will transcend
The pages of this poem for her to hear.
