"I Love You", says the coffee
scent wafting up the stairs
"I Love You" says the open book
face down on the table, waiting

"I Love You" sing the birds
flitting through the frigid air
to crack the seeds of life

"I Love You" say the squirrels
bushy flags flicking
as they nosh on nuts

"I Love You" say your eyes as you
spread your arms and lock in for a hug
like a shuttle approaching the mothership

"What was that for?" you ask
as I cradle you, unaware from behind

"What wasn't that for?" I reply
"I love you. That's all there is!"
