How to Love You

Pass the first brush of shoulders,
Forget the timid and elusive smiles.
Ignore the embarrassment of the introduction
Or the intrusive first stutter.
Never mind the hand-holding walks
And the bold time-consuming kisses.
These are all easily replicated
When love is young.

Beyond flesh and reaction
There’s a ballroom on every corner,
And a quick kiss behind every word.
Sharing dreams on the mountain top
Or drying tears on a silent shoulder.
One childlike smile in every look...
This is how I love you
Again, every day
