Much much more

Poem by Connie V

Journeys I’ve embarked on
near and far I’ve gone
places I’ve visited
variegated locations
evoking divers emotions
but none could quite duplicate
all the sensations
I feel when I’m with you

Love
-love can almost depict it
but not quite
harmonious shades
and dulcet sounds
can almost describe it
but it is much more
yes, much much more!

This ardour
unselfish
not boastful
winningly considerate
never keeping records of wrongs
patient
kind
understanding

The sweet  sensations
that emanate  from you
leave me with a warm feeling
what on earth shall I call it
it is much more
yes, much much more than the word
love.
