i am loved

say it to me sweetly, slowly
repeat it for the thousandth time
those three little words

i love you
i love you

the lyrical
the musical rhythm
the sugar cane and rose’s blush
unparalleled to the love you exude

spoils and spells
you are my one and only
allowed to embrace my hand
my soul
every morning
every minute of the day

i am loved
i am loved by you

if only i could shout
as loud as the rolling thunder
and tremble the earth with my happiness

say it one more time
whisper if you can

i love you
i love you

a chained exchange
the one i don’t want to escape
only drown the scented day
with your detonating phrase

i love you
i love you

i am loved
i am loved by you
