I cannot say,
“I love You,”
just for who
you are.
I didn’t know
you, your love,
grace, compassion,
joy, hope-
these,
I thought
I knew-
until I met
you. I
realize, I
am a child,
learning,
what love
is. Covered
by grace, limit-
less, Your grace-
isn’t sufficient.
You promise
more. I
love You,
because, you
first, loved
me.
