“Show me your love”, I said,
And she pointed to the flowers
And noted the colors of the rainbow
In their succulent petals,
Awash in sweet morning dew.

“Show me your love”, I said,
And she hearkend me to listen
As the birds sang to one another
In the boughs of maple trees,
Spattered in red and gold.

“Show me your love”, I said,
And she laughed and swept her arms
To embrace the beauty
Of the slowly setting sun,
In flames upon the horizon.

“Show me your love”, I said,
Then she pointed toward
The stars and constellations
And spoke of their infinite beauty
In the depths of the midnight sky.

“Show me your love”, I said,
Then she smiled,
And slowly, gently, she turned…
Then she kissed me.

Finally.
